Review of Securities & Commodities Regulation


In the recent Hoskins case, the government was thwarted in its effort to prosecute foreign misconduct in U.S. courts. The government has been more successful in pursuing coordinated prosecutions of international criminal matters with foreign governments. The authors analyze these developments, and then turn to the relatively recent Allen and Flotron cases, which have raised new hurdles for DOJ in cross-border investigations. They conclude that, despite setbacks, the government will continue to pursue aggressively even the furthest-flung conduct affecting the United States and its citizens.
