CORRECTION TO PRESS RELEASE ISSUED APRIL 12, 2007 IN CIVIL TAX INJUNCTION CASE OF UNITED STATES v. LOWELL BAISDEN
WASHINGTON – The United States District Court for the Eastern District of California has issued an order to the Department of Justice to correct portions of its press release dated April 12, 2007, which was issued in connection with the civil tax injunction case of United States v. Lowell Baisden. That release stated that the District Court had issued a preliminary injunction against Lowell Baisden, a Bakersfield, California, certified public accountant, "that prevented him from promoting his tax scheme." The Court did not find that Mr. Baisden had engaged in or promoted a tax scheme; nor did it find Mr. Baisden was engaged in a fraudulent tax promotion. The matter is set for trial on June 17, 2008.
