Case Detail


Special Report: Federal Erosion of Business Civil Liberties
(Regulatory Proceeding)
WLF has released its Special Report: Federal Erosion of Business Civil Liberties, an up-to-date analysis of the key legal, judicial, and regulatory developments over the years of the growing trend at the federal level to criminalize normal business activities. With an Introduction by former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, WLF's report critically examines seven legal topics, including the erosion of the attorney-client privilege and the dilution of mens rea requirements. The report discusses the increasing and unwarranted criminal prosecution of businesses and individuals by the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency for regulatory matters when administrative or civil remedies would be more appropriate. WLF also produced a useful companion Timeline fold-out chart that summarizes the key cases and events discussed in the 125-page report.
