White HouseThe Executive Office of the President issued a remarkable, yet little noticed Memorandum recently that has the potential to revolutionize the way justice is carried out in enforcement proceedings at federal agencies.

The Memorandum directs agencies to provide much greater due process to individuals and companies investigated by these agencies and addresses specific procedural and substantive revisions to civil and administrative proceedings that are long overdue.

Thompson Hine partners Joan Meyer and Norman Bloch co-authored an article entitled “White House Due Process Memo Could Reform Enforcement,” published in Law360.
