The federal RICO law was enacted as part of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970 and has been used extensively in criminal prosecution of organized crime. At the time of its adoption, the law also authorized private civil suits seeking treble damages and attorneys' fees for unlawful acts of so-called "legitimate" businesses. These civil RICO suits have arisen in a wide variety of corporate and commercial situations. Banks, franchisors, marketing firms, technology providers, their suppliers and their clients have all been impacted by this new form of litigation. These state and federal civil claims are often brought in concert with fraud, antitrust, deceptive trade practices and franchise law claims, making this area of law particularly complex. As this scenario emerged, and Supreme Court decisions supported the use of RICO in business disputes, CCH introduced the RICO Business Disputes Guide. The Guide gives a comprehensive view of civil "racketeering" litigation arising from business dealings. Subscribe today to:
