Getting A Fair Trial

Finding jurors that do not have strong feelings about the WorldCom corporate scandal may prove difficult for the company’s former auditors. Arthur Andersen is the last remaining defendant in the WorldCom securities class action and the case is about to go to trial. According to a Bloomberg report, counsel for Arthur Andersen has informed the judge that many of the individuals in the jury pool “owned WorldCom stock while others displayed ‘deeply felt’ bias against Andersen and WorldCom.” Jury selection begins on Monday and the trial is expected to last until the end of May.
