  • No. 309: Greg Lindberg and Three Others Indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in North Carolina

    April 24, 2019 by Joseph M. Belth

    On March 18, 2019, in a sealed indictment, a federal grand jury in North Carolina charged Greg E. Lindberg and three others with criminal wrongdoing. On April 2, a magistrate judge unsealed the indictment. On April 3, the case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Max O. Cogburn, Jr. President Obama nominated him in January 2011, and the Senate confirmed him in March 2011, (See U.S.A. v. Lindberg, U.S. District Court, Western District of North Carolina, Case No. 5-19-cr-22.)
    The Defendants and the Charges
    Lindberg, a resident of Durham, North Carolina, is the founder and chairman of Eli Global, LLC, a Durham-based investment company, and the owner of Global Bankers Insurance Group (GBIG), a Durham-based managing company for several insurance and reinsurance companies. The other defendants, all residents of North Carolina, are John D. Gray, a Lindberg consultant; John V. Palermo, Jr., a vice president of Eli Global; and Robert Cannon Hayes, chairman of the state Republican party in North Carolina. All four defendants were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud and one count of bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, and aiding and abetting. Hayes was also charged with three counts of false statements.
    The arrest warrants were issued in Charlotte in March. Each warrant described the offense as follows:

    did knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, & agree with one another, and with others known and unknown to the Grand Jury, to devise & intend to devise a scheme and artifice to defraud and to deprive, by means of material false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, & promises, & to transmit and cause to be transmitted by means of wire communication in interstate commerce, any writings, signs, signals, pictures, & sounds for the purpose of executing the scheme & artifice to defraud & deprive, that is, to deprive North Carolina & the citizens of N.C. of their intangible right to the honest services of the COMMISSIONER, an elected State official, through bribery, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1343 & 1346

    The defendants were arrested and arraigned on April 2. They pleaded not guilty, were released with conditions, and each posted an unsecured appearance bond of $100,000. Pretrial reports were filed under seal on April 3. A docket call is set for July 1. The arrest warrant for Lindberg is in the complimentary package offered at the end of this post.
