SEC rebuts former Qwest execs’ requests to dismiss charges

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER ” The Securities and Exchange Commssion wants a court to uphold its complaints against former Qwest executives who say claims against them should be dismissed.

The SEC filed documents in federal court Thursday saying the objections to its lawsuit are without merit. It alleges the former executives’ actions caused Denver-based Qwest Communications International Inc. to improperly report revenue.

Former Qwest finance chief Robert Woodruff, former President Afshin Mohebbi and former accountants James Kozlowski and Frank Noyes had argued the government is invoking state secrets privileges that will hurt their defense and that the statute of limitations has expired for some allegations.

Former CEO Joseph Nacchio also is a defendant.
