What do a fashion company, a rapper, and a former president have in common? Well, this week’s lesson answers that question.


Abby is joined by Managing Partner at Grell Feist PLC and Adjust Professor at the University of Minnesota Law School Jeff Grell for a lesson about the RICO Act!


Jeff explains the history behind the formation of the RICO Act and discusses the various elements behind a RICO claim. He breaks down the different punishments one can face if found guilty of violating RICO and explains what can make these cases difficult to prosecute. Later, Jeff analyzes prominent RICO cases, including former President Trump, Young Thug, and SHEIN.
