Firm News

On Friday May 12, 2023, the U.S. Department of Justice dismissed with prejudice its indictment of Richard Speights in a complex white-collar fraud investigation. Mr. Speights was represented by Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, which had filed a motion to dismiss the indictment nine days earlier.

“We are delighted to see that Mr. Speights’s case was dismissed after a months-long effort to vindicate our client,” said Gene Besen, a partner in Bradley’s Government Enforcement & Investigations Practice Group, who led the defense team. “We advocated relentlessly on behalf of Mr. Speights, and we are pleased that the DOJ was held to the high standards imposed by the U.S. Constitution.”
