Product details

Since its enactment in 1970, the federal RICO statute has generated thousands of published opinions, hundreds of law review articles and at least a dozen treatises and specialized publications. In addition, the enactment of RICO-based statutes by 33 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Territory of the United States Virgin Islands has complicated matter further.

This fully-updated edition is a comprehensive new collection and analysis of state RICO statutes and caselaw current through at least September 30, 2010. This edition sets forth the statutes and caselaw in each of the 33 states, as well as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Territory of the Virgin Islands, which have enacted statutes based upon the federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute.

First the book provides an overview that is followed by a specific chapter for each jurisdiction. The chapters are organized around familiar principles applicable to RICO litigation, in order to reflect the similarities and differences of each jurisdiction's statutory scheme and caselaw. The federal RICO statute is reproduced at the end of Chapter One and each jurisdiction's statute is reproduced at the end of its respective chapter. The book also includes unpublished opinions that provide additional insight into the analysis utilized by various courts.
