Criminal Bid-Rigging Trial

Jan 25, 2010

Provided extensive consulting on behalf of the defense in preparation for a three-week, federal, jury trial in a case involving bids submitted to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for highway construction contracts. The United States accused the defendants of conspiracy, bribery, and obstruction of justice. Our efforts included multiple phases of consulting and research, including community attitude surveys, ThemeTesting® focus group studies, development of demonstrative exhibits, theme development, development of a juror profile, and assisting with jury selection. Result: After about eight hours of deliberation, the jury found both defendants not guilty on all counts.
