"Rethinking Criminal Corporate Liability," Indiana Law Journal, Vol. 82, No. 2

This article by Jenner & Block Partner Andrew Weissmann challenges current federal law that holds companies criminally liable for employees who commit crimes benefitting their organization. Mr Weissmann argues in the article that if the organization is to be criminally charged, the government must establish that the corporation failed to have reasonable policies and procedures to prevent the employee's conduct.
