Today, the Second Circuit court of appeals affirmed the convictions of three former UBS AG executives for their role in an orchestrated scheme to manipulate municipal bond deals. In so doing, the federal court endorsed the government’s expansive use of a decades-old bank fraud law that carries a expansive statute of limitations.
Ex-UBS executives Peter Ghavami, Gary Heinz and Michael Welty were convicted in The Sumer of 2013 for manipulating the bidding for investment deals and municipal financing contracts. The ruling marked a significant victory for federal prosecutors.
