After #Ponzi scheme verdict, Allen Stanford seeks new trial based in part on judge's ruling allowing #news reporters to post live trial updates via Twitter. Here's what I told the Houston Chronicle's Terri Langford about this appellate strategy.

"There's no difference between a reporter tweeting or in the old days going to a pay phone and transmitting the information," Hilder said. "It's just more real time and keeping up with realities of today's fast moving electronic age."

Bloomberg Report: BNP Paribas Sued by U.S. Over Banker's Alleged Role in Fraud
October 19, 2011

BNP Paribas SA was sued by the U.S. over allegations the Paris-based bank aided a grain export fraud scheme involving commodity payment guarantees provided by the Department of Agriculture.

When the Mexican importers defaulted on payments for dozens of grain shipments from 1998 to 2006, BNP and Jovenal "Jerry" M. Cruz, its former trade finance manager, "presented or caused to be presented false or fraudulent claims to the USDA," Zingaro said in the complaint, which also names Cruz, BNP Paribas North America and BNP Paribas Houston Agency as defendants.

Philip Hilder, Cruz's attorney, said in a phone interview that the former BNP vice president has entered a plea of not guilty and is awaiting trial in February. Three other people charged in the scheme have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing, according to court records.
