Yes, I am awaiting with eager anticipation the testimony in the upcoming scheduled May 6th criminal trial of Andersen. It will probably focus on the shredding of documents in Andersen's Houston office and the internal communications within Andersen. Of course, there is always the possibility that there won't be a criminal trial; as a last minute plea is still an option.

I would then have to look forward to a civil trial where I would expect hundreds of e-mails being examined which could provide the exact details of Andersen's Enron engagement. Along with that could be the testimony of various Andersen personnel about meetings that discussed the possible handling of the off-the-books partnerships, Andersen's liability exposure, and the pros and cons of keeping Enron as a client.
