The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to consider an appeal that sought to limit the scope of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) by “narrowing the law’s definition of a ‘foreign official.’” The Court rejected a petition for certiorari by Joel Esquenazi and Carlos Rodriguez, two former Terra Telecommunications Corp. executives who were convicted under the FCPA, which urged the Court to clarify who counts as a foreign official under the law. Legal experts have called this case “the most important in the history of the FCPA.” (Law360)

Filmmaker Phelim McAleer writes in the New York Post of actress Mia Farrow’s recent trip to Ecuador to “show her support for indigenous people” in litigation against Chevron. McAleer writes, however, that the Ecuadorian government had paid Farrow “$188,000 to go there and hype the case against Chevron,” noting that the average slaty in Ecuador is “around $300 a month.” (New York Post)
