In high profile corruption, money laundering, fraud and financial services cases, the burden of proof in the Court of Public Opinion usually shifts to the accused. The Yates Memo, enacted in 2015 by former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, established a policy that required corporations to identify all individuals involved in any aspect of alleged misconduct in civil and criminal investigations. Since the policy was issued, corporate executives are increasingly being targeted and held accountable for alleged wrong doing.
