In October, Ohio senator Sherrod Brown was revealed to have written to more than a dozen banks asking for details of every settlement they’ve entered into with US federal enforcement agencies since 2005. The aim of Brown’s missive is yet to be clarified, although the consensus is that the committee wants to find out whether such settlements have successfully deterred recidivism in the banking sector.

Therefore, some readers may be surprised to learn that in attorney’s offices across the United States, prosecutors have been allowing companies to enter into secret DPAs and NPAs. Meanwhile, in other cases, prosecutors have simply lost the documents. In this issue, GIR finds out what’s going on.
