Money Tree trial prepares to wrap up

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Closing arguments are expected to start on Friday in the three week long Money Tree lawsuit in the Albany Federal Court.

On Thursday, one member of the Bainbridge family that founded and operated the Money Tree lending company was on the witness stand.

Elizabeth Johnston testified about emails from 2011 from former company president Brad Bellville, offering to buy her stock in the company as it failed.

Attorneys think testimony will conclude and closing arguments will start Friday as the civil trial brought by investors in the company wraps up.
