On September 17, 1999, WLF filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, urging the Court to limit the reach of the conspiracy provision of the RICO law in civil disputes between private parties. In this case, an officer of a corporation was fired by the Board of Directors for poor performance. He then sued the directors claiming that his firing was due to alleged misdeeds by the directors that constituted a conspiracy under RICO. The lower courts dismissed the case, holding that his firing did not stem from a predicate criminal act under RICO, and therefore, the conspiracy RICO provisions did not apply. WLF filed its brief on behalf of itself and the Allied Educational Foundation.
