A report released last week by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform says “the Yates memo threatens to undermine corporate cooperation with the Justice Department,” reports.
“The report – Department of Justice’s New Threshold for Cooperation – was written by Matthew Miner, a partner at Morgan Lewis & Bockius in Washington, D.C.,” continues the article. “Miner says that the Yates memo, put forth in September 2015 by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, ‘seeks to leverage corporate investigations to aid the Department in its task to an unprecedented degree.'”
“In so doing, the policy threatens to undermine the ability of corporations to fully cooperate with the Department,” he writes.
