Ian Norris is the case that keeps on giving. Sue Reisinger's Corporate Counsel magazine article this week (see here) To recap, Norris was exonerated by unanimous jury verdicts of the substantive offenses of obstruction of justice. No witness -- all 8 government cooperating witnesess -- testified that they appeared before the grand jury. Nor did any witness testify that there was an agreement to obstruct the grand jury. The appeal thus is against the lesser charge of an inchoate conspiracy to obstruct of justice. The link to the response brief is here.
