Civil RICO

          In civil cases, a suit charging violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act has been called “the litigation equivalent of a thermonuclear device.”  Danny Howell has extensive experience litigating civil RICO cases, and especially in getting them dismissed before they detonate into black holes of spiraling defense costs.  See In re Reciprocal of Am.(ROA), Nos. MDL 1551, 04-2313, 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 37325, at *48 (W.D. Tenn. June 5, 2006) (dismissal for failure to meet reliance requirement to establish proximate cause in civil RICO actions predicated on fraud).
