Attorneys for former Tyco International CEO L. Dennis Kozlowski and CFO Mark J. Swartz have asked the New York Court of Appeals for new trials for their clients because of allegedly prejudicial rulings by the trial judge on the use of materials gathered by Boies, Schiller & Flexner during an internal investigation of the company. The two men were found guilty in 2005 of plundering Tyco of more than $100 million in improper bonuses and other enrichments and were sentenced to 8 1/3 to 25 years in prison.
