The petition of the day is:
13-289

Issue: (1) Whether the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act’s (RICO) proximate causation requirement may be satisfied by mere foreseeability or instead requires a direct causal relationship; and (2) whether plaintiffs may show fraud causation and damages by aggregate evidence of a correlation between the alleged fraud and doctors’ prescribing behavior without any showing of actual individualized causation.
