Insurers are been ordered to pay the legal fees of a Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) official arrested in a wide-ranging criminal corruption case, opening the door for other FIFA officers and their attorneys to tap the $50 million policy.

More than 40 people have been charged with racketeering, wire fraud, or money laundering for an alleged scheme to enrich themselves through the corruption of international soccer. The insurance policy held by FIFA provides global coverage for costs incurred to defend any actual or alleged wrongdoing, investigation costs, and reasonable legal fees.

Ballard Spahr White Collar Defense/Internal Investigations partner Charles Stillman—who represents Jose Maria Marin, the former Brazilian football federation president—said, “It’s a very important decision for the future of the case.”
