New Feature: In the News!

We introduce “In the News,” a new feature born from the Law.com news network, with commentary by our authors. This feature links the important practical information you will find in our latest product releases with what is going on in our industry.

This month Caroline Young, author of Legal Research and Law Library Management, reports on cybersecurity and the expanding role of the law librarian as data gatekeeper. The latest update of the popular treatise contains an analysis of best practices for law libraries, an outline of the role of law librarians in bolstering cybersecurity, and a cybersecurity preparedness checklist.

Coming soon, Lisa J. Banks (Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP), author of Whistleblower Law: A Practitioner’s Guide, will give her perspective on key issues likely to be impacted by the new Administration.

As a federal government watchdog, I often work with corporate and government insiders with first-hand knowledge of matters vital to the public interest. Whistleblowers are the first and best line of defense against waste, corruption, and other misconduct by the government and its contractors. This book is simply without equal as a comprehensive, non-biased guide to the current landscape of federal and state whistleblower law." —Danielle Brian, Executive Director Project on Government Oversight

In this volume, you will access an in-depth, balanced overview of whistleblower law and the many issues facing practitioners today:

  • Major legislation, including the False Claims Act of 1863, the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, and The Dodd-Frank Act
  • Whistleblower protections in the areas of consumer and investor affairs, nuclear and environmental law, and transportation
  • Survey of state laws and the District of Columbia
  • Whistleblower incentive programs, including those from the SEC, CFTC, and IRS
  • Unique challenges faced by whistleblowing attorneys and compliance officers
  • Employer considerations, including preventative measures, investigations, disclosures, privilege, and settlements.

White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses

The brief overview: In White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses, Otto G. Obermaier, Robert G. Morvillo, Robert J. Anello, and Barry Bohrer have gathered a prestigious group of authors to counsel you on: criminal tax cases; securities fraud; RICO; mail and wire fraud; banking crimes; criminal antitrust actions; bribery and extortion; conspiracy; entrapment and government overreaching; government contract fraud; grand jury practice; perjury and false declarations; and general principles governing the criminal liability of corporations, their employees and officers.

White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses also features a discussion of computer crime, including provisions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the creation of Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Squads designed to combat copyright theft, computer fraud and hacking. There is also valuable information on forfeiture; the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; and the Supreme Court's interpretation of the standard of “gross proportionality” as it applies to violations of the Eighth Amendment's “excessive fines” clause.

Because the crime of "insider trading" is not expressly defined by any statute but relies instead on judicial interpretations of certain broad provisions of the securities laws, understanding the law of insider trading requires a close analysis of the relevant statutes and rules as well as of the decisions of multiple courts in both the criminal and civil contexts. Release 54 for White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses introduces a new chapter by Robert J. Anello and Brian A. Jacobs that examines the underlying law, including the Supreme Court’s 2016 decision in United States v. Salman, civil insider trading liability, civil and criminal penalties, the private right of action, and pending insider trading legislation.
