"Improper SEC and DOJ Cooperation Can Get Charges Dismissed"

For those involved in SEC, Sarbanes-Oxley, & representing public corporations, this is a very interesting article from the Legal Times....

"The aggressive expansion of white-collar prosecutions to areas regulated by civil enforcement agencies sometimes leads to unintended results -- including significant defeats -- for prosecutors.

"...two district court opinions, from last year's HealthSouth criminal case in the Northern District of Alabama (United States v. Scrushy) and from last month in the District of Oregon (United States v. Stringer), imposed significant sanctions on the government because of findings of improper coordination between civil and criminal agencies."
