Mensack v Morgan Stanley, FINRA

Posted by Larry Doyle on February 26th, 2013 5:43 AM |

What do you think you would do if in the process of appealing a case, you were informed that the court stenographer had “somehow” lost (deleted or destroyed, perhaps??) 8 hours of testimony? Do you think you might be a little pissed off?

Just a little?

Mind you, what if the 8 hours of “lost” testimony were not just any 8 hours. That is, they were not the first 8 hours. They were not the last 8 hours. What if they were 8 hours of selected intermittent testimony including key points when the plaintiff alleges the defendant perjured himself?
