Scott Mollen, a partner at Herrick, Feinstein, discusses “Omega SA v. 375 Canal LLC," where the landlord was hit with a $1.1 million statutory damage award based on on the building’s connection with counterfeiting and trademark violations.
Holding the Line on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
In their Second Circuit Review, Martin Flumenbaum and Brad Karp discuss the court’s ruling in 'United States v. Ho', which "silenced post-'Hoskins' speculation that the Second Circuit would continue to narrow the scope of FCPA liability."
In United States v. Ho, 984 F.3d 191 (2d Cir. Dec. 29, 2020), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit refused an invitation to narrow the scope of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Two years ago, in United States v. Hoskins, 902 F.3d 69 (2d Cir. 2018), the Second Circuit ruled that the FCPA only applies to foreign nationals covered by the statute’s specifically enumerated categories. In Ho, the defendant argued that Hoskins required a further narrowing of the statute, insisting that these enumerated categories were mutually exclusive and that it was inappropriate to convict him under two separate provisions.

Two recent circuit-level decisions determined that appeals of confirmed plans of reorganization were equitably moot despite criticizing the doctrine. These two decisions suggest that sooner or later reconsideration of the doctrine and meaningful review of bankruptcy court decisions should occur. Corinne Ball explores the issues in this edition of her Distress Mergers and Acquisitions column.
Firms are carefully thinking about who should be owners, and the pandemic complicated that question further.
