Global Investigations Review (GIR) has announced its nominees for the Most Important Court Case of the Year. The nominees include United States v. Usher, et al., 17-CR-00019, in which Schertler & Onorato’s client, Christopher Ashton, and two codefendants were acquitted of manipulating prices in the euro-to-dollar foreign exchange market through an online chatroom. S&O Partner David Schertler led Mr. Ashton’s trial team with assistance from S&O Partner Lisa Manning. The October 2018 acquittals followed a two-week jury trial in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
