With two weeks left in the semester and final exams thereafter, hypotheticals are dancing in my head.
But this question is no hypothetical.
In 2009, there were three FCPA trials – Frederic Bourke, William Jefferson, and Gerald and Patricia Green.
So here is the question.
What is the common thread in these three FCPA enforcement actions – a fact which speaks to the great difficulty individual FCPA defendants generally have in mounting a legal defense?
Please feel free to comment on this blog or otherwise send me your answer (perhaps there is more than one correct answer).
I am a quick grader, so stay tuned for the answer tomorrow.
