Publisher: New Jersey Law Journal
August 1, 2013

Joy Harmon Sperling, Denise Rosenhaft and Albert Levi authored an August 1 article for the New Jersey Law Journal, "Defending Against RICO Claims Based on Allegedly Fraudulent Foreclosure." They discuss the implications of the district court's ruling in Giles v. Phelan, Hallinan & Schmieg, in which "the court found that the New Jersey litigation privilege does not bar federal statutory claims" and "held that the [Noerr-Pennington doctrine] was a complete defense to a class action alleging RICO violations against the law firm of Phelan, Hallinan & Schmieg, for bringing an allegedly fraudulent foreclosure suit."
