Tourre Jury Sends Three Notes to Judge

The jury in the civil fraud trial of Fabrice Tourre, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. vice president sued by regulators over his role in a failed billion-dollar investment, sent three notes with questions to the presiding judge during its second day of deliberations.

The jury of four men and five women is considering whether to find Tourre liable for misleading participants in a 2007 transaction known as Abacus. The U.S. Securities and Exchange claims Tourre hid the role of hedge fund Paulson & Co. in selecting the subprime mortgage bonds behind the investment, then made a $1 billion bet they’d fail.
