employees and 15 counts of filing False Claims for requesting refunds of
tax pre-payments that had been made by Simkanin on behalf of those

Facing years in federal prison, his trial lasted only hours, beginning
and ending yesterday - largely because the Court denied Simkanin the
opportunity present any expert defense witnesses or legal evidence
