According to Aspen Publications, Civil RICO Practice Manual, Third Edition, serves as a comprehensive resource to which attorneys for plaintiffs and defendants, judges, professors and students turn for information encompassing the full array of issues relating to RICO. An analytic and practical resource of high value to any attorney practicing in this area, Civil RICO Practice Manual provides comprehensive coverage of the Act and its various judicial interpretations, while at the same time taking the litigator through all aspects of RICO-based litigation-from the complaint, through trial and appeal. The following features are also emphasized.
This resource supplies the forms and models you need to practice
Provides model complaints and other forms you need to prosecute or defend a claim
Keeps you current with the latest applications or bases for civil RICO claims including copyright infringement
Delivers the latest case law and analysis on RICO, including U.S. Supreme Court cases
Facilitates your understanding of special issues unique to civil RICO, including the Person/Enterprise standard, which holds persons employed by the enterprise responsible for damages caused by prohibited RICO activities
This new Third Edition of Civil RICO Practice Manual adds an important dimension: a meaningful discussion of the criminal uses and scope of RICO. The language of the RICO statute applies equally to civil cases and criminal indictments. As a result, U.S. Supreme Court and appellate decisions rendered in criminal RICO cases almost invariably have meaning for civil racketeering litigation.
