Reyes Conviction Affirmed

Gregory Reyes, former CEO of Brocades's conviction for securities fraud and making false filings with the SEC, falsifying corporate books, and false statements to auditors was affirmed by the Ninth Circuit.  The prior conviction had been vacated because of prosecutorial misconduct.  Convicted after a new trial, he argued that the case should be "dismissed because of (a) prosecutorial misconduct, (b) insufficient evidence of materiality to support his conviction, and (c) various evidentiary and instructional errors at trial."  The court rejected these arguments and affirmed the conviction.
