A number of errors crept into the article, “Supreme Court Backs RICO Use Against Political Groups,” in the Oct. 20 issue. 1) The Court did not uphold the Third Circuit Court of Appeals decision approving the use of RICO against an anti-abortion group; it declined to grant a petition for certiorari (review) of the lower court ruling. A denial of certiorari cannot be cited as having any value as a precedent. The ruling therefore stands as a precedent only for the Third Circuit, and the other II Circuit Courts are free to ignore this ruling if they wish. (The Supreme Court only accepts about 160 out of 5,000 cases submitted for review each term.) 2) The government has not yet used the criminal or civil provisions of RICO against any political group, as may be inferred from the article-although the threat is certainly there, that it may do so in the future. The Pennsylvania case was a civil action brought by private parties.
