On April 12, 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, under the leadership of Bill Baer, announced that it would limit carveouts from the protections afforded by corporate plea agreements to individuals the DOJ has reason to believe were involved in criminal wrongdoing. The names of the individuals excluded from a corporate plea agreement’s prosecution immunity will no longer be publicly disclosed, but instead will be kept in a separate, sealed court filing. The change will provide welcome relief for executives, given the potential for public disclosure to damage reputations and expose executives to follow-on civil litigation. Baer noted that “[a]bsent some significant justification, it is ordinarily not appropriate to publicly identify uncharged third-party wrongdoers.”
