I need to find cases where state or federal employees like Onaka, Fuddy, Obama, Pelosi or Astrue were found guilty in civil RICO, meaning filed as a civil case, not in a criminal RICO which was filed by the government

There are 2 types of RICO cases: cases that were filed by the government, meaning filed by the Attorney General of the State, District attorney or US Attorney (meaning prosecutor for the federal government) or cases filed by individuals like myself, who are telling the judge: I am a victim of this RICO conspiracy.
There are a lot of cases where state and federal employees were convicted in RICO (racketeering, like certifying forged IDs) and went to prison, when they were sued by the government.
I need to find civil RICO cases, ones that were filed not by the government, but by private parties, where governmental employees were found guilty or cases where the court stated, that they can be sued if there was a malicious intent, but in that particular case their actions did not rise to the level of malice.
For example, there was a case Gutenkauf v City of Tempe 10 cv 02129, where the court said that governmental employees can be sued, but in that particular case the actions of the employees did not rise to the level of malice
2 Former State Employees Sentenced on Racketeering
St. Petersburg, FL (AP) – June 4, 2012 —
Two former Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission employees have been sentenced to 10 years in prison for racketeering.
Allen Nelson and his wife, Melody Oakleaf-Nelson, were sentenced by a Pinellas County judge on Friday after pleading guilty to racketeering and conspiracy to commit racketeering.
The Nelsons and three others were charged in Feb. 2010 with making fraudulent purchases, altering invoices, falsifying billing records and bid tampering.
An agency spokeswoman said in an email Monday that the sentence makes it clear that there are significant consequences for this kind of wrong doing.
The Nelsons must also pay restitution to FWC in the amount of $553,000.
Officials say the Nelsons lived in Seminole but also had a home in Las Vegas, which they partially furnished and financed with state money.
