  • CMM Spotlight: Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe

    The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe may not yet be open to the public, but innovation is already on full display on these hallowed grounds in Shoreham where famed inventor Nikola Tesla conducted research. Known for his groundbreaking contributions to alternating current (A/C) electricity, fluorescent lighting, radio, and the technology behind the x-ray, wi-fi, and more, the Serbian-American inventor and engineer has been enjoying a posthumous resurgence in popularity after dying impoverished in 1943. (The 187-foot-tall broadcast tower Tesla built at the Shoreham site was torn down in 1917 for scrap to help pay Tesla’s bills at the Waldorf Astoria.)  But ...

  • Hiding and Seeking Information During Litigation: Disclosure of Information Contained in Private Social Media Accounts

    Hide and seek. It’s a cute game when kids play, but what about in the context of a contentious litigation? The cute game transforms into a cutthroat endeavor to seek any information to sabotage the opposition’s case. Given the prevalence of social media (even Grandma has a Facebook account nowadays), the first point of attack to collect necessary intelligence tends to be the opposition’s social media accounts. The instantaneous nature of social media provides a window into the opposition’s everyday life. They share where they are, what they are doing, and who they are with. Some social media users try ...

  • To Disclose or Not to Disclose: The DOJ’s New Anti-Corruption Corporate Enforcement Policy

    In April 2016, the Department of Justice (DOJ) launched an experimental Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enforcement policy known as the “Pilot Program.”  For those unfamiliar, the FCPA is a U.S. law that prohibits business from bribing foreign officials and requires certain accounting transparency among public companies.  The FCPA is enforced both criminally and civilly, has broad jurisdiction, and resulted in nearly $2 billion in settlements in 2017 alone. The Pilot Program is, in effect, a mechanism for increasing self-reporting and cooperation by companies that may have violated the FCPA in exchange for penalty reductions and the possibility of a declination.  ...
