Three Analysis Group affiliates provided deposition and trial testimony for VTI. Dr. William Lehr
, a telecommunications economist and MIT research affiliate, testified about the damages suffered by VTI as a result of the fraud. Former FCC Commissioner Dr. Harold Furchtgott-Roth
testified on issues of domestic and international telecommunications regulation. Dr. Terrence McGarty, an investor and telecommunications entrepreneur, testified on business customs and practices in international telecommunications. Principal David Sosa
and Vice President Sara Filipek
provided consulting support to the testifying experts and to VTI and Nixon Peabody. Qwest settled with VTI after the close of expert discovery. Following a six-week trial involving the remaining defendants, the jury found in favor of VTI, awarding the company $9.3 million in damages.
