Parallel Civil and Criminal Proceedings (Jun 2020)
Parallel criminal and civil cases arising out of the same event occur with some frequency. Join Quentin Brogdon as he explores several issues: whether the civil case must be abated, until the criminal case is resolved, or if the cases may proceed simultaneously. Potential consequences of the assertion of the fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination, and potential effects of differences in the scope of discovery in the civil case and the scope of discovery in the parallel criminal case.
