Criminal Commodities Fraud Case

Jun 11th, 2009
Experience

Conducted a multi-day ThemeTesting study in Houston on behalf of the defense. The United States had alleged that several professional commodities traders had entered into an illegal conspiracy to manipulate and corner a particular energy commodities market.  A three-day ThemeTesting® focus group study was conducted, which assisted the trial team with case assessment and the development of case presentation strategies. Based on dispositive motion practice, the case was dismissed after the study and shortly before the scheduled federal jury trial.
