Tim Heaphy speaks with Law360 on the recent New York Times report suggesting New York prosecutors have deepened their inquiries into criminal conduct in international sports. Heaphy explains the precedent that the FIFA probe, led by the same prosecutors from the Eastern District in New York, has on the investigation, “[Prosecutors] wouldn’t have issued subpoenas if there wasn’t information present, likely through the FIFA investigation, in the other events.” Heaphy concludes, “Prosecutors don’t issue subpoenas totally speculatively.”
