A federal jury found the former owner of a physical therapist staffing company not guilty on two counts and guilty to a third count in the first-ever criminal wage-fixing and no-poach indictments.

Following a six-day trial in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, the jury declared in its verdict that Neeraj Jindal, the former owner of a physical therapy staffing company, was not guilty of violating Section 1 of the Sherman Act. He was accused in United States v. Jindal of conspiring with competitors to lower pay for physical therapists.
