Sarah P. Kelly, a partner in Nutter’s Litigation Department and a member of the firm’s Business Litigation practice group, commented in The New York Times on the recent request by FIFA, the ruling body of global soccer at the center of a corruption case in the United States, to the United States Justice Department for a share of the hundreds of millions of dollars that authorities stand to collect from those defendants who have so far admitted to participating in bribery and kickback schemes. In the article, “FIFA, Embracing Role as Victim, Seeks to Collect Millions in U.S. Case,” Sarah pointed out that the government might ultimately award FIFA money with certain conditions, such as creating a fund managed by a trustee or with parameters for spending. “The court would have the power to order exactly where the money was going to go,” she said. “You could see the money earmarked for youth soccer or another worthy cause.”
