RICO LITIGATION

 

          Representation of parties with respect to violations of the state and federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations statutes.

          The following are examples of our representation in this practice area:

            Sprague & Sprague successfully represented an estate in its claims against a managing partner of a family partnership, resulting in a favorable and often-cited opinion of a federal court of appeals which allowed our client to proceed against the managing partner, and others, under RICO.

            We have succeeded in having RICO claims dismissed in varied circumstances, including failure of plaintiffs to properly plead or establish the necessary predicate acts, the pattern of racketeering, or elements of a conspiracy required to state claims in this highly technical area of the law.
