Skilling tries to overturn verdict

Former Enron CEO files motion with district court

Jeffrey Skilling, the former Enron boss, has filed a motion with the US
District Court in Houston claiming that the evidence presented at his trial was
‘legally insufficient’.
He is hoping the guilty verdict handed down in his fraud trial last month will
be overturned. If it is not, he said he would ask for a retrial.

Skilling is due to be sentenced on 23 October.

He was found guilty on 19 out of 28 counts, while Enron founder and former
boss Ken Lay was found guilty on the six charges in a 15-week trial in Houston
that followed four years of investigation.
