Extradition in International Cartel Cases
12:30 PM EDT
In the first successfully litigated extradition on an antitrust charge, Romano Pisciotti, an Italian national, was brought to the United States in April 2014, almost ten months after his arrest in Germany during a layover at Frankfurt Airport, to face a one-count felony indictment for his alleged participation in the marine hose worldwide bid-rigging conspiracy. While the threat of extradition from foreign countries to the United States has always been a possibility, the Pisciotti case suggests that practitioners refocus their attention on the law and practice in this area. Join our panelists as they discuss the developments in extradition as a tool in international cartel cases.
