Former KPMG tax partner Robert Pfaff has been indicted on new charges alleging he participated in a tax shelter scheme involving the Big Four firm and a company located in Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands.

Pfaff was one of four remaining defendants in the case, including another former KPMG partner and a former senior tax manager, as well as a former attorney at the law firm of Sidley Austin.

Prosecutors are appealing that ruling.
