Ex-EY Partner Not Getting His Day in Supreme Court

Robert Coplan, one of three former EY partners who were convicted of selling illegal tax shelters that cost the government $2 billion, has had his case rejected by Supreme Court. Coplan's conviction was upheld last November by the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York and he was hoping to challenge one count in front of the big bench "to narrow the scope of the federal law that criminalizes conspiracies to defraud the U.S. government."  [Bloomberg]
