Disgraced hedge fund founder Steven Maiden will testify Tuesday against two former business associates who stand accused of manipulating shares in the video-software company KIT Digital Inc. KIT's former Chief Executive Officer Kaleil Isaza Tuzman and tech industry entrepreneur Omar Amanat are accused of using Maiden's fund to mask KIT's failing finances and to hide massive trading losses at an investment fund run by Amanat's brother.The lawyers rejected the U.S. portrayal of the men as simple con artists, saying the jury would see extensive evidence of the pair's business successes.But in the government's opening statement, jurors were told they'd also see evidence of phony financial statements and numerous discussions about the frauds in text messages and emails exchanged between Amanat, Tuzman and Maiden.
