On behalf of SCCE, Joe Murphy has filed comments with the Department of Justice’s Deputy Assistant Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.  In his speech of October 6, 2017 DAG Rosenstein invited comments on the Department of Justice’s enforcement policies. Among other points,  the filing challenges the inconsistent approaches taken to compliance programs, and particularly the Antitrust Division’s odd policy of only rewarding companies that refrain from implementing compliance programs until they are caught after a violation. This one unit refuses to consider preventive compliance programs, in conflict with the rest of the Department of Justice.  This creates an unfair environment where those outside the Department do not know whether or not compliance programs actually count in dealing with the Department.
