Indian businessman Ram Nandwani was accused of bankruptcy fraud with his brothers when their once successful electronics business failed in 2002. Panama alleged that the Mr. Nandwani defrauded multi-national banks out of millions of dollars.

Mr. Seitles and co-counsel David Oscar Markus successfully argued that the the statute of limitations had elapsed and that Panama was seeking extradition for a crime not listed in the Treaty between the United States and Panama (“Dual Criminality Doctrine”).

The Judge denied the extradition of Ram Nandwani to Panama.
