Phillips Nizer White Collar Practice Chair Ilene Jaroslaw is quoted in Law360 article: Loughlin's 'Sweetheart' Deal May Spark 'Varsity Blues' Pleas05/22/2020
Ilene Jaroslaw, a former federal prosecutor and the chair of Phillips Nizer LLP's white collar and investigations practice group, said the agreed-upon sentences for Loughlin and Giannulli, which are far lower than some of the terms suggested by the government in other "Varsity Blues" cases, could encourage parents with perhaps stronger cases to sit down with the government and see how much better they could do.
Ilene Jaroslaw is quoted in New Jersey Law Journal: Justices Unanimously Overturn Bridgegate Convictions, Ruling Against Feds05/12/2020
The ruling means fewer tools are available to federal prosecutors to rein in corruption and abuse of power by public officials, said Ilene Jaroslaw, head of the white-collar group at Phillips Nizer and a former prosecutor in the Eastern District of New York.
“The court held today that public officials cannot be guilty of federal wire fraud or government-programs fraud unless the corrupt state actor’s objective is to obtain money or property. Merely implementing bad policy out of venality or other bad motives does not violate these federal criminal statutes,” Jaroslaw said.
