Court Orders Warn Against Foot-dragging in Government Investigations

February 2, 2011

Two recent orders arising out of the FTC's investigation of condom-manufacturer Church & Dwight serve as a stern warning to companies that believe that simply ignoring a government investigation will make it go away.

On October 29, 2010, Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola of the federal district court in Washington, D.C. gave Church & Dwight two weeks to respond to the entirety of a Civil Investigative Demand ("CID") and subpoena that the FTC issued in early 2009.
