10 Sep Anonymous v. Anonymous Accounting Firm
MORGAN COUNTY SETTLEMENT OF $400,000
A case of professional negligence was brought by the owner of a trucking business in Priceville against accountants who were asked to conduct a forensic audit of the trucking operation. The owner was concerned that the manager of the Priceville business might be either embezzling money or distorting financial records. Accountants gave the manager a “clean bill of health” but it was later learned that the owner’s concerns were well founded.
