Please join Center of the American Experiment on Friday, May 12th at the Hilton Hotel for a lunch forum with Howard Root, author of Cardiac Arrest: Five Heart Stopping Years as a CEO on the Feds’ Hit-List.

Howard Root is the recently-retired CEO of Vascular Solutions, Inc., a Minnesota medical device company he founded in in 1977 and led in creating over 100 new medical devices and 650 American jobs.

In 2011, the federal government threatened to destroy his company and send Howard to prison.  All over one device.  A device that never harmed a single patient and made up less than 1% of the company’s sales.

Even after the charges were proved baseless, the Department of Justice refused to back off.  In 2016, after hiring 121 lawyers at a cost of $25 million, and without calling a single witness to testify at trial, Howard and Vascular Solutions received a complete acquittal.  One juror emailed afterward: “What the federal government did to you, your company and your employees is nothing short of criminal.”

Howard Root’s story illuminates unchecked Department of Justice greed and misconduct.  In this lunch forum, Howard will share how he stood up against the federal government and what can be done to check the virtually unlimited power of prosecutors in America.
