Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations (RICO)

RICO’s civil cause of action permits private plaintiffs to recover treble damages where the plaintiff’s business or property is injured because of the defendant’s RICO violation.  Most commonly, a civil RICO claim alleges damages resulting from an enterprise in which the defendants were associated and in the conduct of which the defendants participated, through a pattern of two or more racketeering activities.  More traditional racketeering activities such as bribery, robbery, extortion, and illegal gambling operations are included.  Critical to business plaintiffs, however, is that mail, wire, tax, bank, and bankruptcy fraud, as well as money laundering, are also included racketeering activities.
