United States Second Circuit

US v Hoskins, 16-1010

Affirmed in part and reversed in part. The Second Circuit agreed with the district court that the government cannot use theories of conspiracy or complicity to charge a defendant with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act if he is not in the category of persons covered by the statute. However, they reasoned that the defendant could conspire with foreign nationals even though he was never in the United States.
