    This book analyzes the application of the constitutional right against self-incrimination to civil litigation. This topic is of increasing importance in an era when parallel civil, criminal, and administrative proceedings are becoming more common and practitioners necessarily must consider all of the implications of a witness' decision to invoke, or not to invoke, the right against self-incrimination.With the continued growth of regulatory structures that allow for civil, criminal, and administrative liability - often for essentially the same conduct - and the proliferation of civil forfeiture proceedings that can precede, accompany, or follow a criminal prosecution, the importance of these decisions continues to increase.Counsel for parties and nonparty witnesses must continually grapple with decisions regarding whether to advise individuals to invoke their right against self-incrimination, and counsel for organizations must understand the implications of those invocations for their clients as well. The Right Against Self-Incrimination in Civil Litigation gives you the legal analysis that you need to make informed, well-reasoned decisions.
