|12-667||4th Cir.||N/A||N/A||N/A||N/A||OT 2012|
Disclosure: Goldstein & Russell, P.C., whose attorneys work for or contribute to this blog in various capacities, is among the counsel to the petitioners in this case, which is listed without regard to the likelihood that it will be granted.
Issue: Whether allegations that an employer engaged in a pattern of violations of federal immigration laws for the purpose of depressing employee wages can state a claim under Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), 18 U.S.C. § 1961 et seq., as the Second, Sixth, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits have held; or whether such allegations necessarily fail to state a claim because, as the Fourth Circuit held below, immigration violations cannot be the proximate cause of depressed wages.
