Dr. Wisniewski testified that the information in the PowerPoint presentation largely mirrored data released publicly by Elan in a June 17, 2008, news release….

Mr. Martoma’s lawyers, who put on the defense case for two days, rested on Thursday afternoon. Closing arguments are expected to begin Monday.
