“The criminal law also incorporates civil causes of action that track criminal wrongs. For example, under the Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, a party injured by the criminal conduct proscribed by that law can collect damages if she can prove certain predicate crimes, such as murder, arson, or fraud. This is particularly relevant for this Comment because judicial immunity does not extend to predicate crimes related to immunized judicial acts. Furthermore, under Dennis, immunized judicial acts can be used as evidence in proving the existence of predicate crimes.”
