The Court’s decision granting the motion to dismiss the indictment has been filed. On May 10, 2011, following a six-week jury trial, Lindsey Manufacturing Company, its CEO, Keith Lindsey, and its former CFO, Steve Lee, were convicted of conspiring to violate the FCPA and committing an additional five substantive violations of the FCPA.
