In this episode, we highligh some of the legal news of the past week, including how the Supreme Court gets basic facts wrong, and insane decision from Louisianna.
Then we dive into the details of the RICO law. Grainne explains how the law works, how it is used currently, then she lays out how a RICO case might be used against Harvey Weinstein if the DOJ were interested in such things.
