NACDL Files Amicus Brief in Boyle Case

The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) filed an amicus brief in the RICO case, Boyle v. United States, a case before the Supreme Court.  It is argued that,

"This Court should reverse and hold definitively that a RICO enterprise requires structure apart from a random association of individuals to commit crime. RICO did not and could not create a federal felony for “a pattern of racketeering activity.” If an alleged RICO enterprise need not have structure, then the statute’s explicit enterprise requirement is meaningless."

For background and commentary on this issue, see the prior post here.
