ILR Offers ‘Prominent Opposition’ to Yates Memo

Yesterday, ILR offered “the most prominent opposition yet” to a policy memo issued last year by Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates, reports Bloomberg.The Yates memo held that “companies [are required] to develop evidence against their employees and turn over possible suspects in order to win leniency.”

In a report issued at ILR/National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers event, “The Enforcement Maze: Over-Criminalizing American Enterprise, ILR released a paper saying “the government’s ‘all or nothing’ approach to gaining cooperation creates uncertainty for businesses because there is no guarantee that compliant companies will receive a break in penalties.”
