Statement by Acting U.S. Attorney David Gaouette Regarding Today’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Opinion in the Case of Joseph Nacchio

(LAWFUEL)- “Today’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion reaffirms what the government has believed from the beginning, that the jury verdict finding Mr. Nacchio guilty was indeed correct,” said Acting U.S. Attorney David Gaouette. “With today’s 10th Circuit Court of Appeals decision, justice has been served. I would like to thank the entire prosecution and appellate team of attorneys from the District of Colorado’s United States Attorneys Office and the Department of Justice attorneys in Washington, D.C. who throughout this very long and difficult case did such an outstanding job. I would especially like to recognize Acting Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler, who argued the case before the Tenth Circuit as well as Jim Hearty and Kevin Traskos from our office, for a job well done!”
