Arthur Andersen Trial

The first week of testimony in the Arthur Andersen trial ended yesterday. The company's strategy seems to be to argue that former lead auditor David Duncan's document shredding was ill advised, but not illegal. Andersen has also attempted to acquire notes from Duncan's meetings with congressional investigators, but the request was refused by the trial's judge. NPR'S Cheryl Corley reports from Houston.
