Government's Brief in Ionia Management Case

The appellant's brief in the case of United States v. Ionia Management S.A.,and an amicus brief from a host of different organizations, were previously noted on the blog here.  These briefs raise the issue of the viability of corporate criminal liability and whether corporations will be held liable for acts by employees.

To add to the collection of briefs from this case is now the DOJ appellee's brief, that in response to the corporate criminality argument notes that "[i]t is for the Supreme Court, and not the lower courts, to overrule their decisions or extend them to new contexts."
