Lauryn Hill's Tax Evasion a 'Battle for Survival' Play

May 28 (Bloomberg) -- Nathan Hochman, partner at Bingham McCutchen LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about his representation of Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill in a federal tax evasion case. On May 6, 2013, U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Arleo sentenced the singer and songwriter to three months in prison followed by three months of home confinement for not filing U.S. tax returns. Hochman, in this "Rainmakers" episode, also explains why Ms. Hill failed to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007.
