In the News: Jumping to Conclusions?

According to a story in US News & World Report this week, "the days of cracking down on white-collar crime may already be over." Part of the evidence they use to back-up this claim is the US Sentencing Commission's decision to remove language that gave prosecutors the right to demand waiver of attorney-client privilege (a decision ACC has advocated for some time). The story also use the trials of Richard Scrushy and Frank Quattrone to bolster its case. Plus, ACC's Susan Hackett gets quoted on what's next.

Is US News right on the money or is it making a giant leap? Read the story and let us know what you think.
