The Government Really Means It This Time (Part II)
As we reported in September, DOJ’s Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates released a seven-page memorandum announcing DOJ’s reinforced efforts to bring cases against individuals. She anticipated that DOJ would revise the U.S. Attorney’s Manual (USAM) to implement these principles. On November 16, 2015, again via a speech by Ms. Yates, this time before a group of bankers, DOJ announced the issuance of the revisions to the USAM.
