In a surprise move, on Oct. 6, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to not decide one of the most anticipated cases of the year. No, not the much ballyhooed same sex marriage cases the Supreme Court declined to decide.
The other surprise move by the Supreme Court that same day; little noted by the media; is that the Supreme Court also passed up a chance to rule in what is probably the most important Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) case of the last 10 years. Esquenazi, et al. v. USA, Case No. 14-189.
