Partner and Atlanta trial lawyer Chris Timmons was featured in The New York Times, offering unique insight from his experience as a Georgia prosecutor on the state’s version of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Better known as RICO, the statute has been used in a high-profile indictment of former President Donald J. Trump and 18 alleged co-conspirators to tie together the elements of a broad conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
When asked about the state’s ambitious six-month trial timeline, Timmons told The New York Times, “Six months to start a RICO trial is lightning fast. They usually take a year to put together. That suggests the D.A.’s office walked into the grand jury room knowing what their case will look like at trial.”
