36:55: Former Prime Minister of Israel Olmert acquitted of bribery. Ties into the US, and into the Sands investigation. How would this effect a US investigation?
In the middle of this: Tom leaves, Howard chokes, Tom returns.
41:44: Walmart, facilitation payments, and the (potentially premature) death notice for FCPA reform

Come hear me and Jonathan Marks speak: June 25th (Monday) in San Francisco and June 26th (Tuesday) in Houston.
China Law Blog: definitely worth the time. In fact, it’s worth a lot of time.
