The number of deferred and nonprosecution agreements between the U.S. Department of Justice and corporations declined by 60% in 2008 — from a historic high of 40 in 2007 to 16 last year, according to a forthcoming study. Despite the lower numbers, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act continued to dominate the subject of those corporate pretrial agreements, with seven of the 16 agreements last year resolving FCPA violations.
