Defense Plans to Rest in Dewey & LeBoeuf Criminal Trial

Those of you who are teaching Chapter 6, Part II (Duties to Third Parties and to the Law) may want to refer to the ongoing criminal trial of three former executives of Dewey & LeBoeuf, who are being tried for larceny, fraud and falsifying business records. The trial began in late May and the defense team plans to formally rest its case on Tuesday without calling a single witness. Prosecutors working under Manhattan district attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. have called more than 40 witnesses to support the prosecution’s case. Recent update on the case can be found here. Prior blogpost can be found here.
