Enron Scandal: Jeff Skilling Files Appeal

Well, just when all the corporate scandals appeared to have died down, along comes a fairly interesting issue in the Enron scandal. Jeff Skilling, convicted in Houston of fraud for his part in creating bogus off-shore companies to hide Enron debt, has filed a motion arguing that the Federal Prosecutor failed to turn over 400 pages of transcripts of interviews of Andrew Fastow, the former Enron employee who masterminded the off-shoring and cut an early deal with federal prosecutors.

We’ll see if this gets any traction after an appeals court hears it. Meanwhile, Skilling is serving his sentence in a federal prison.
