MCSquared’s FARA Problem: Not Very Interesting

When MCSQuared’s failure to register under FARA became known last year, I fired off a FOIA request to try to obtain correspondence between the government and MCSquared on the issue.

The results are in, and they’re not very interesting. In June 2014, the government, alerted to MCSquared’s work for Ecuador by Paul Barrett’s article in Bloomberg Businessweek, asked MCSquared for information to determine whether it was required to register. MCSquared’s lawyers submitted an initial registration shortly thereafter. No drama, really, I’m sorry to say.
