As reported here, Andrew N. Yao, who was indicted (available here) in the District of Delaware on multiple fraud related charges and two counts of making a false oath in a bankruptcy deposition, has filed a motion in limine to exclude the admission of certain evidence at trial, including evidence of extra-marital affairs and evidence of motions for the appointment of a trustee in the chapter 11 case in which the false oath are alleged to have been made. Yao is charged in one count with falsely testifying that certain wire transfers on the books of a corporate chapter 11 debtor of which he was sole shareholder were made for aircraft maintenance when in fact they were allegedly gifts to a mistress. Another count charges Yao with falsely testifying that other wire transfers from the debtor's operating account for family celebrations when in fact they were allegedly used to fund Yao's gambling activities.
A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning on the defense motion (available here) to exclude as irrelevant and prejudicial the "other wrongs" evidence. The government's motion in opposition is available here.
