InsideCounsel Magazine June 2013
In 1977, President Carter signed the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) into law to outlaw the bribery of foreign government officials by the private sector. And then ... nothing happened.

One of my favorite times of year is mid-spring when InsideCounsel hosts its annual SuperConference.
June 5 marks my one-year anniversary as general counsel at Harsco Corp.
Since its inception in 2005, the Class Action Fairness Act has allowed class action defendants to transfer cases involving more than $5 million from plaintiff-friendly state court to federal court.
For many U.S. companies, the concepts of “China” and “data privacy” collide only in the context of ensuring their private data is protected from the prying eyes of China-based cyberspies.
The Working Families Flexibility Act would allow private employers to offer compensatory time off to employees who work extra hours instead of giving them overtime pay.
On July 3, 2012, Netflix Inc. CEO Reed Hastings posted a seemingly simple message to his personal Facebook page that read in part: “Netflix monthly viewing exceeded 1 billion hours for the first time ever in June.”

It’s been more than two years since the Supreme Court handed down its landmark pro-arbitration ruling in Concepcion v. AT&T Mobility, but the case is still reverberating throughout the court system, as the 4th Circuit’s recent decision in Muriithi v. Shuttle Express Inc. demonstrates.
A recent 6th Circuit decision could help suppress certain False Claims Act (FCA) cases in the health care industry.
Things haven’t been looking too good recently for lawyering.
Paying It Forward
When in-house lawyers licensed in other states are only permitted to do work for their employers, it can make setting up a successful corporate pro bono program pretty difficult, as socially conscious GCs are surely aware.
When potential FCPA violations rear their head, a thorough investigation into what went wrong and why is crucial.
