For those interested in learning more about our appeal

For those interested in learning more about our appeal, I recommend reading Donald
Gilliland’s article in the June 7 edition of the Potter Leader Enterprise (“Oral Arguments in
Rigas Appeal Scheduled for Next Wednesday”).  The article provides a balanced and
accurate summary of the major arguments made by both our lawyers and the government
attorneys in briefs submitted to the Appeals Court.  The summary highlights our strong
contention that this case is at its heart an accounting matter which should be decided by
jurors who have been properly educated by qualified accounting experts on the
complicated accounting principles at issue in the case.
