In a Fraud case where a Hall of Fame New York Jockey and the Clerk of the Scales at the New York Racing Association (NYRA) Racetracks at Aqueduct, Belmont and Saratoga, were charged in a 291 count Fraud Indictment which included Scheme to Defraud, Conspiracy, Falsifying Business Records and Tampering with a Sports Contest, all charges were dismissed in the middle of a Jury Trial upon the Motion of Attorney Todd D. Greenberg.

The 291 Count Indictment was filed by the New York Attorney General and became known as the “Overweight Jockey” case. Attorney Todd Greenberg was quoted by the New York Post, a day after the arrest of his client, stating that his client was being “…handed up as a sacrificial lamb by NYRA so NYRA could keep its lucrative contract to run Belmont, Aqueduct and Saratoga Racetracks which was up for renewal”. Mr. Greenberg went on the say that “charges in the Indictment required Criminal Intent” and that his client “…had no criminal intent whatsoever.”

After extensive trial preparation, on September 17th, 2007, in the midst of a three week Jury Trial, Saratoga County Court Judge Jerry Scarano dismissed the Indictment. As Attorney Greenberg said from the outset, Judge Scarano found that “there is no evidence presented during the Trial of any criminal acts or any criminal conspiracy that occurred in Saratoga County” and dismissed all charges involving the Saratoga, Belmont and Aqueduct Racetracks. It was Mr. Greenberg’s knowledge of the law of Fraud which convinced the Judge, to take the case away from the Jury, an extraordinary legal step, on the ground that there was simply no evidence of a criminal intent to defraud. The progression of the case and the legal strategy of New York Attorney Todd Greenberg, was closely followed in the media:
