  • Seventh Circuit Victory:  RCC prevailed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, successfully defending a $413 million judgment obtained for our clients, victims of a complex RICO scheme whose interests in a valuable close corporation were stolen by the company's management and their associates.  Writing for a unanimous panel, Judge Joel Flaum found that the defendants' "drumbeat of discovery abuse" -- including concealing evidence, destroying evidence, fabricating documents, and avoiding a deposition -- amply justified the District Court's entry of a default judgment sanction against them.  The Seventh Circuit also affirmed the District Court's adoption of RCC's expert-supported damages calculation.  Click here to read the appellate opinion, here for the District Court's default order, and here for the District Court's damages order.
