Andersen verdict imminent

Beleaguered Andersen is today waiting to hear if jurors in Houston have found the firm guilty of conspiracy to obstruct justice.

If the firm is found guilty, it would give the US government its first scalp since it began investigating the Enron affair.

According to reports, as the five week trial drew to a close, federal prosecutors made a final attempt to darken the reputation of the once grand firm.

If Andersen is found not guilty, it would prove a massive dent to the government’s drive to secure criminal charges against the Enron executives it is still investigating.
