Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act of 1970


A law providing for treble damages against those engaged in "a pattern of racketeering activity." At one time, a number of liability policies excluded coverage for suits alleging RICO Act violations against insureds. Now, however, this exclusion is much less common.
