Local 501 RICO suit

Defendants in the IUOE Local 501 RICO suit requested a dismissal hearing. The hearing took place on July 8, 2013. The defendants argued that even if they committed the crimes alleged, those crimes do not rise to the level of RICO. The defense attorneys also claimed that the plaintiffs have no standing to bring the suit, a claim which has never been made previously. There has not yet been a decision made on the dismissal hearing.

Zazzali steps down

James Zazzali stepped down as IUOE ethics officer sometime before July 3, 2013, according to a letter dated July 8, 2013. It is unclear if there is a replacement being considered; all legal questions are currently being directed to IUOE General Counsel Liz Nadeau.
