Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) under the Bank Secrecy Act Webinar


In October 2012, six financial lobbying groups filed a petition of certiorari asking the United States Supreme Court to resolve conflicting lower court decisions regarding whether banks and other financial institutions are immune from lawsuits for the SARs they file. The Supreme Court has decided not to hear the case and questions remain regarding the Bank Secrecy Act's safe harbor provision and immunity from civil litigation linked to SAR filings for financial service companies.

Pepper partners Frank A. Mayer, III and Richard J. Zack hosted a webinar about these issues and how to reduce the possibility for legal liability you may face. After the webinar, Rich discussed what listeners will hear in the webinar recording.
