United States of America v. Robert J. Gagalis, et al.
In a securities fraud criminal matter brought against four former Enterasys Networks executives, affiliate Laura Stamm provided testimony on the stockholders' loss for use in conjunction with sentencing guidelines. Ms. Stamm used a trading model to determine that inflated contract revenues cost shareholders between $97 million and $144 million. At one point during the trial, the judge had Ms. Stamm and the defense expert on the stand together and allowed them to challenge each other's methods. US District Court Judge Paul Barbadoro concluded a loss estimate at the low end of Ms. Stamm's range, saying "I believe her."
