Yesterday, Lindsey Manufacturing Company, Keith Lindsey, and Steve Lee – defendants in an FCPA case pending in the Central District of California – filed a reply brief (here) to the DOJ’s opposition to defendants’ motion to dismiss challenging the DOJ’s interpretation that employees of alleged state-owned or state-controlled enterprises are “foreign officials” under the FCPA.
See here for the prior post on the defendants’ motion to dismiss.
See here for the prior post on the DOJ’s opposition brief.
Other “foreign official” challenges pending (although not as far along in terms of briefing) include the Carson matter (also in the C.D. of California – see here) and the O’Shea matter (in the S.D. of Texas – see here).
