Fink & Rule Win Dismissal of Indictment in
"Largest Criminal Tax Fraud Case in U.S. History"
Robert S. Fink and Caroline Rule obtained the dismissal of the indictment against their client, a former member of the accounting firm KPMG, in a prosecution which has been termed the "largest criminal tax fraud case in U.S. history." The indictment was dismissed against thirteen of nineteen defendants, on the ground that the prosecution violated the Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the United States Constitution by causing KPMG to change its former practice of reimbursing all legal fees of current and former employees.
