Qwest Ex-CEO Nacchio Awaits New Sentence

The Justice Department won’t appeal a recent court decision ordering a new sentence for Joe Nacchio, the ex-Qwest Communications International Inc. (Q) CEO convicted two years ago of insider trading.

The news comes after last month’s ruling that a trial judge overdid it when sentencing Nacchio to six years in prison and forfeiting $52 million gained from his felony activity.

The Justice Department had the right to request reconsideration of that order, but said Monday it will not seek a review. A U.S. District Court in Denver next will rule on the re-sentencing.
