Rossi's attorney says they've complied with government sealed documents request
Attorneys for embattled former Reditus Laboratories CEO Aaron Rossi say they've complied with a government demand to claw back or destroy the sealed federal discovery materials that Rossi shared in a Tazewell County civil case.
Edward McNally said the filing of the sealed documents in state court was "an inadvertent and ministerial error."
He said the damage was mitigated because the documents in question were always under seal, and never leaked to the public or press.
Rossi faces criminal mail and tax fraud charges in federal court, unrelated to his time as Reditus' CEO. There are also ongoing federal criminal and civil investigations relating to Reditus Labs.
Rossi is due back in court for a pretrial conference on March 23.
