Jury Deliberations Begin in Dewey & LeBoeuf Accounting Fraud Case

Yesterday, on September 16, 2015, in the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, the jury began deliberating whether the three former executives of the now defunct law firm of Dewey & Leboeuf conspired to manipulate the finances in an effort to defraud investors and bank lenders. ¬†In a daring move, defense lawyers chose not to call any witnesses and rested their case. For more detailed information about the trial, it is reported that one legal newswire, Law360, has been live blogging the event.¬†Warning: the testimony “has often been dull and focused on arcane accounting treatments.” Latest news of the trial can be found here.
