Nacchio Conviction Overturned

Next trial could be more interesting.

U.S. District Court Judge Edward Nottingham presided over the District Court trial.

Nacchio, 58, argued on appeal that he should be granted a new trial because of flawed jury instructions, the wrongful exclusion of a defense expert witness and rulings related to his classified information defense. He also contended that the case should be thrown out because there was insufficient evidence for conviction.
