Although there are many worthwhile issues in this case, one particular focus is on whether there was sufficient evidence "to establish vicarious criminal liability for a corporate defendant under respondeat superior" and whether there was error in the "trial court's instructions on corporate liability." This case forcefully takes on corporate criminal liability both from a policy perspective and in its application.  This is clearly a case that needs to be closely followed.
