    Mackey and Barclay have represented Bales since near the start of the investigation, through indictment, and at trial. Bales, and Venture's general counsel William "Bill" Spencer, were accused of defrauding the State of Indiana and Huntington Bank.

    Venture served as the State's tenant representative and helped place various state agencies in 160 private offices throughout Indiana. Bales and Spencer were accused of obtaining an ownership interest in one of the buildings leased to the Indiana Department of Child Services and then concealing that interest from the State and Huntington Bank officials in violation of Venture's contract with the State and loan documents signed by the building's landlord.

    The three-year long investigation was conducted by the FBI and the trial lasted nearly two weeks with more than 700 trial exhibits.

    The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office dropped all criminal charges and the pending civil litigation worth over $500 million against OmniSource, which had been under investigation for over 3 years for allegations of racketeering and accepting stolen property.
  • National pharmaceutical wholesaler H.D. Smith Wholesale Drug Co., Inc. recently recovered more than $1 million, including costs and fees, from the U.S. government after successfully defending allegations that some of a customer's accounts were traceable to criminal conduct and subject to civil forfeiture.

    Barnes & Thornburg LLP attorneys Larry Mackey, Jason Barclay and William Leeder assisted H.D. Smith with the recovery, which is one of the only reported cases in the country where a claimant has secured costs and fees from the federal government under a provision in the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 (CAFRA).

    CAFRA altered virtually all aspects of civil judicial forfeiture procedures initiated by the federal government. CAFRA provides that a claimant may recover seized assets from the government if they are an “innocent owner. . . who did not know of the conduct giving rise to the forfeiture,” or “upon learning of the conduct giving rise to the forfeiture, did all that reasonably could be expected under the circumstances to terminate such use of the property.” 18 U.S.C. §983(d)(2)(A).

    The government argued that while H.D. Smith did not have actual knowledge of any criminal conduct, it should have been aware of that conduct based on the volume of pharmaceuticals sold to the pharmacy. However, H.D. Smith was in full compliance with all obligations imposed on it by the Controlled Substances Act, 21 U.S.C. §801 et. seq. and all regulations promulgated thereunder related to the monitoring of controlled substance purchases by the pharmacy at all relevant times. In furtherance of those obligations, H.D. Smith had even notified the DEA of suspicious orders placed by the pharmacy before the DEA had even initiated the investigation resulting in the seizure of the accounts. Remarkably, the Government’s own witnesses conceded that the volume of controlled substances ordered by the pharmacy was in no way indicative of criminal conduct. The Government further conceded that there had been no regulatory violation committed by H.D. Smith as a result of its monitoring efforts with respect to this particular pharmacy.

    After a trial in federal court in the Eastern District of Michigan, the Court held that H.D. Smith sustained its burden of proving its innocent owner defense. In reaching its conclusion, the Court further ruled that H.D. Smith was “not willfully blind to the conduct giving rise to the seizure and forfeiture of assets of the pharmacy either before or after it acquired its interest in the property.” Therefore, H.D. Smith was entitled to the return of the balance of the seized accounts.

    More importantly, when a party such as H.D. Smith “substantially prevails” in defending a civil forfeiture action under the CAFRA, it is entitled to recover its attorney fees and costs. 28 U.S.C. §2465(b)(1)(A). Subsequent to receiving a favorable ruling from the court, H.D. Smith filed a comprehensive Motion for Attorney Fees and Costs. The case is reported at U.S. v. Four Hundred Sixty Three Thousand Four Hundred Ninety Seven Dollars & Seventy Two Cents in United States Currency, et al., 853 F.Supp.2d 675 (E.D. Mich. March 30. 2012). The United States has abandoned any appeals.
  • Represented a Division I lacrosse coach during a state criminal investigation of a student athlete in the school's lacrosse program.

Qwest Comms, Inc., Cause No. 03-CH-508(Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois).
  • Represented publicly traded national homebuilder client in internal investigation of employees and contractors for over billing, fraud and theft.
  • The United States government, acting through the Department of Justice Environmental Crimes Section, the Environmental Protection Agency and the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, filed a 26-count criminal indictment against United Water Services, Inc. (United Water), one of the country’s largest water and wastewater treatment companies, and two of its managers, Dwain Bowie and Gregory Ciaccio; alleging that the defendants tampered with legally required monitoring methods while managing the Gary Wastewater Treatment Facility for the City of Gary from 2003 to 2008, thus violating the Clean Water Act.

    On November 9, 2012, after a two-week trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, which followed a four-year federal government investigation led by the EPA, the FBI and the Department of Justice, a federal jury acquitted United Water and the two managers of all allegations. The prosecutions marked the first time the government brought tampering charges without proof of actual alteration of compliance samples. Judge Simon accepted the Barnes & Thornburg team’s proposed definitions of what constitutes tampering under the Clean Water Act.

    The verdict represents a complete vindication for the company and the accused individuals, avoids multi-million dollar fines and penalties, as well as possible imprisonment for the employees, and prevents a potentially business-ending debarment from future waste water and drinking water treatment business within the United States.

    Leading the defense were partners Larry Mackey, Patrick Cotter and Harold Bickham, with primary assistance from partner George Horn and assistance throughout the trial by associates Tim Haley and Meredith Rieger.
