Judge Denies Travel Act Challenge

The Travel Act challenge mounted by the Carson defendants has failed.

On Friday, Judge Selna ruled against them and in favor of the DOJ.

Mike Koehler’s report is here.

With defeats on the Travel Act and earlier on the FCPA’s definition of foreign official, nothing now stands between the Carson defendants and their trial, scheduled to start in June next year.

We asked in a prior post if the Carson defendants might plead if they lost the Travel Act challenge.
