We’d like to congratulate our former Board Member, Vinoo Varghese, on his recent victory in the Second Circuit. Last year, Vinoo successfully petitioned for a new trial in the Eastern District of New York for his client in a criminal tax trial. The government, represented by the DOJ Criminal Tax Division, appealed to the Second Circuit. Last month, the Circuit denied the government’s appeal, in what Law360 termed a “rare move.”
Congratulations to Vinoo and his client!
