Lindsey Manufacturing Bribery Case Tentatively Dismissed

Two Lindsey Manufacturing Co. executives won a tentative ruling dismissing their convictions on charges that they bribed officials at a Mexican state-owned utility.

U.S. District Judge Howard Matz in Los Angeles issued the order at a hearing today dismissing the case against Keith Lindsey, president of the closely held maker of emergency electricity towers, and Steve Lee, its finance chief. The judge cited government misconduct including providing false information to get a search warrant, making unauthorized searches and giving incorrect testimony to a grand jury.
