United States v. Groysman, No. 13-1031 (2d Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed her conviction for conspiring to commit health care fraud, and conspiring to commit money laundering. Defendant principally argued that the main government witness gave testimony that included inadmissible hearsay and inadmissible opinions, and was allowed, without personal knowledge, to provide the foundation for the admission of seven government exhibits that were not admissible under the Federal Rules of Evidence and that were inaccurate and misleading. The court found that the admission of the challenged exhibits and much of the main government's witness's testimony was serious prejudicial error and concluded that defendant's conviction should be vacated. The court remanded for a new trial and did not reach defendant's other arguments.
