The trial of Mayer Brown partner Joseph Collins, who allegedly helped craft fraudulent loans that hid debt at commodities broker Refco Inc. and led to its 2005 collapse, has been postponed until next month. Collins was indicted in December 2007 on federal criminal charges that his legal work for Refco included securities fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, false filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, money laundering and making misstatements to auditors.
