The Department of Justice (DOJ) has spoken, and it’s telling us it’s tired. The largest federal agency responsible for combating white collar crime, the DOJ recently announced new policies and training programs focused on seeking individual accountability in these crimes (now known as the Yates Memo). Bemoaning the need to undertake a “painstaking review of corporate documents, which can number in the millions,” the DOJ is essentially requiring complete disclosure from corporations in order to receive any cooperation credits. Instead of reading all your emails, the DOJ wants you to read the emails and “provide to the Department all facts relating to that misconduct.”
