United States v. Kevin Ring

The first trial, held in fall 2009, resulted in a hung jury on all ten counts (six under 18 USC 1346 and one conspiracy). In response to the government’s attempt to bring the case to trial again, Ring filed a motion for judgment of acquittal, based heavily on the recent Skilling decision. D.C. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle denied to motion and case went to trial in fall 2010.
