Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Can one of the convicted criminals sue the other for money that was allegedly lost in the illegal business activity that they were both convicted (and sentenced) for?
They can sue them but it would not be successful. The threshold to file a suit is very low, but the burden to actually win the suit is very high. When you have illegality involved in the basis for there wherein both parties were convicted, it is unusual for one to successfully sue the other.
The only basis for a successful suit would require the plaintiff to have evidence of wrongdoing that is not associated with the criminal activity within the business. That is very hard to do.
As such, it is unlikely that any such suit would be meritorious.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please rate my answer positively.
