This morning's Wall Street Journal has a wonderful article describing the commentary by the jury on the trial and the deliberation. According to the article it did not come down to Sullivan versus Ebbers, but rather the paper in the trial - - that is the documents. This may actually make it a more interesting appeal. If it had been the credibility of the witness, then the favor would go to the winning party - the government. In the case of admission of documents and instructions to the jury, the court will be looking at the legal issues. This is definitely an appeal to watch. See more here on the issues to consider on appeal.
