WSB News features attorney Henry M. Quillian III on use of Georgia RICO law to recover embezzled assets (video)
Henry M. Quillian III used the powerful tool of the Georgia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) to obtain a temporary restraining order and an interlocutory injunction freezing the assets of the embezzler to prevent the dissipation of the embezzler’s assets prior to the entry of a money judgment or restitution order against the embezzler. Well over $100,000 of value was preserved. An injunction can be obtained under this statute by the plaintiff/victim without having to prove that there is no adequate remedy at law – i.e., the plaintiff does not have to prove irreparable harm in the absence of the injunction.
