DOJ "Mindful of Piling On," Working to Improve Coordination

November 09, 2017

U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the Department of Justice wants to improve agency coordination to lessen the amount of “piling on” in enforcement actions, reports Law360.

In a speech, Rosenstein said the DOJ “will pursue fair apportionment of penalties” in cases where “multiple department components are investigating the same conduct.” This will likely include improved coordination efforts with international law enforcement agencies and U.S. federal, state, and local agencies.
