Every now and then it is nice to have a light writing day. Today is such a day, but that does not mean today’s post is lacking in substance. I am pleased to send you here – an extensive discussion of the FCPA (and other) implications of the News Corporation scandal on Legal Talk Network and Lawyer2Lawyer. Joining me on the program, moderated by Bob Ambrogi, was Jane Kirtley, the Silha Professor of Media Ethics and Law at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota (see here).
In other News Corp. FCPA related news, Gateway News reported here that Representative Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) joined the growing list on Capital Hill calling for DOJ and SEC FCPA investigations of News Corp. Readers may recall that Representative Perlmutter previously introduced a bill seeking to amend the FCPA to provide a limited private right of action. See here and here for the prior posts. According to Gateway News, Representative Perlmutter plans to soon re-introduce his private right of action bill.
A good weekend to all.
