As I stated in a message on April 18 (four days before Barry was acquitted): "... I expect Barry to be acquitted. I have such a low opinion of Judge Hughes, based on how he handled the first trial, that part of me thinks that Barry's acquittal might even be a foregone conclusion."

I am amazed that the prosecution allowed Judge Hughes to adjudicate this case given his extraordinary behavior in the first trial.

Wow the board is silent, David, no comments on Yanks acquittal? Yes it's true, Yank Barry was acquitted on all charges yesterday in Houston. All parties waved their right to appeal and accepted the trial in front of the Judge, and only the Judge as it was ordered to the prosecution by the attorney generals office in Washington D.C. No possible appeals, just vindication. I am interested to hear how anyone will spin this?

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
