    Event Summary
    Recent Supreme Court rulings involving white collar fraud prosecutions have sparked a reevaluation of prosecutorial power and legal boundaries. These decisions may make it more difficult for federal prosecutors to bring charges related to suspected financial schemes including bank fraud, money laundering and insider trading. In two related cases stemming from alleged corruption during the tenure of former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Court continued a trend of pushing-back against perceived prosecutorial overreach by the U.S. Department of Justice. On the same day the Court announced its decisions in the Cuomo cases, an influential Boston-based federal appeals panel overturned the convictions of the only two parents who went to trial in the high-profile Varsity Blues college admissions scandal, ruling that federal prosecutors tried to “criminalize a wide swath of conduct” that isn’t illegal, even if it might be unethical. This term, the Supreme Court also issued important rulings impacting government enforcement under the federal False Claims Act (FCA). By restricting specific fraud statutes and overturning innovative prosecution theories, the Court is actively reshaping the landscape of federal white collar fraud enforcement.

    In a LIVE webcast, thought leader and practitioner Vince Farhat will explore the impact of the Supreme Court’s decisions and their implications on federal fraud prosecutions. He will also examine notable cases and their impact for prosecutors and defendants, as well as provide strategies for navigating the evolving legal framework.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    - Understanding the Supreme Court’s New Restrictions
    - Case Analysis: Examining Alleged Corruption and FCA Cases
    - Implications for White Collar Litigants
    - Best Practices for Federal Fraud Investigations and Prosecutions
    - What Lies Ahead
