Examines criminal and civil investigation and litigation under the federal and state statutes on
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). Specific topics addressed include the
conceptual bases of so-called enterprise liability, including relational rather than individual
definitions of misconduct; the relationships among enterprise liability and related doctrines, such
as conspiracy, complicity, and vicarious liability; procedural implications of enterprise liability,
such as broad joinder of claims and parties, expanded admissibility of evidence, and
complication of pretrial and trial proceedings; the extraordinary civil and criminal remedies
provided for RICO violations; and the impact of wide use of these statutes.
