Tyco's Kozlowski Confronts His Peers

By Nanette Byrnes

Dennis Kozlowski arrived early at 100 Center Street in downtown Manhattan on Sept. 29 for the first day of his criminal trial. It was a crisp fall morning -- a nice day to be outside. But first things first: the matter of jury selection. By 9 a.m., the former CEO of Tyco International had camped himself in the hallway in front of presiding Judge Michael Orbus' courtroom. Dressed in a conservative blue suit and silk tie, Kozlowski would face for the first time the randomly selected group of Manhattanites that will ultimately provide a jury of his peers -- or at least people who live in Manhattan. Few could be considered his true peer, even in a city this rich.
