A top French appeals court today upheld Kerviel's three-year jail sentence over high-risk trading that cost the Societe Generale bank nearly five billion euros ($7 billion). But the court cancelled the 4.9 billion euros in damages that Kerviel was ordered to pay, and referred this part of the ex-trader's sentence to another court near Paris to be re-judged. Kerviel's lawyer Patrice Spinosi had argued in February while appealing the conviction for breach of trust that Societe Generale had committed 'wilful misconduct' and was aware of his client's high-risk trading.
