The Second Circuit in Sedima had required that there be a conviction on an underlying predicate act before a civil RICO claim could be made, the standard now applied in the Delaware RICO Act according to Professor Blakey. In the Supreme Court's Sedima decision, the court rejected this "prior conviction" requirement. See id. at 488. Return to text.
