Judge Kaplan Refuses to Split KPMG Trial

The federal district judge overseeing the Justice Department’s prosecution of the KPMG criminal tax case against 18 defendants (16 of them former KPMG employees) yesterday refused the Government’s request to split the defendants into two groups and hold two separate trials. After the beating that the Government, through its proxy KPMG, took from Judge Kaplan over KPMG’s refusal to reimburse the defendants’ legal fees, this cannot be a welcome development for the prosecution. Something tells me that this case will not end well for the Justice Department.
