<![CDATA[The Ever-Expanding Scope of the IRS Obstruction Statute]]> http://www.maglaw.com/publications/articles/00437 http://www.maglaw.com/publications/articles/00437 The “Omnibus Clause” of 26 U.S.C. § 7212(a) criminalizes conduct that “obstructs or impedes . . . the due administration of” the Internal Revenue Code. In recent years, the government has used the Omnibus Clause to reach acts beyond those that obstruct IRS audits or investigations, and last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decided United States v. Marinello in which it joined other courts of appeals in concluding that § 7212(a) can be violated without proof that there was a pending IRS investigation or proceeding, let alone that the defendant was aware of the IRS’s activity. This article discusses Marinello and its expansive reading of §7212(a).

Although this should bring a measure of relief, a feeling of uncertainty remains. What lies ahead for our nation under the leadership of Donald Trump, billionaire reality television star who invented the chant “Lock Her Up”? What happens to unresolved allegations of federal tax liability and sexual assault? Does the theoretical specter of possible indictment and criminal trial or impeachment loom for President-elect Trump? [...]

Anello Quoted in <em>Thomson Reuters</em>]]> http://www.maglaw.com/news/media-mentions/00663 http://www.maglaw.com/news/media-mentions/00663 On November 9, 2016, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Robert J. Anello was quoted in an article entitled, “Trump due in court before Oval Office.” The article highlights how President-elect Donald Trump could potentially face a federal jury in California. If the trial moves forward, there are many difficulties seating an impartial jury, since there are various strong opinions regarding Trump’s election. As Bob noted, “if experienced pollsters can't get it right, how can a jury consultant who is not spending as much time studying the demographics?”

Anello Quoted in the <em>New York Law Journal</em>]]> http://www.maglaw.com/news/media-mentions/00664 http://www.maglaw.com/news/media-mentions/00664 On November 9, 2016, Morvillo Abramowitz partner Robert J. Anello was quoted in an article entitled, “After Trump's Triumph, a Cloudy Crystal Ball for Firm Leaders.” The article addresses the cautious optimism that New York’s law firm leaders and legal industry observers have about their practices faring under a different regulatory and business environment. Bob notes that, “the most significant impact on the legal industry will be the personnel change at the U.S. Department of Justice” and predicts that, “many sitting U.S. attorneys will soon transition out of public service.” While Trump has said he wants to reduce regulations on manufacturing and other industries, Bob adds that, “it's not yet clear if there will be fewer regulations and enforcement against Wall Street banks.”
