Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Eli Richardson provided comment for a Law360 article related to bribery charges brought against Jamie Fox, the former commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Transportation and former lobbyist for United Airlines. Federal prosecutors allege that Jamie Fox conspired with former New York/New Jersey Port Authority chairman David Samson for the chairman to receive a bribe from United Airlines in return for favorable treatment from the airline. In the article, Eli offers a potential defense strategy saying, "Fox, however, could challenge the government's narrative that he and Samson schemed against United in light of the fact that Fox was a consultant working on behalf of the airline ... If the government portrays United employees as victims to a certain extent, Fox could argue he is among the victims who were pressured by Samson."
