HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A Branford attorney who recently testified in federal court about what she told former clients involved in a pyramid scheme faces a confirmation hearing on her nomination to the Superior Court.

Shelley Marcus is one of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s 16 judicial nominees up for consideration by the legislature’s Judiciary Committee on Friday.

Marcus testified last month at the trial of two Guilford women that she never told members of the scheme their so-called gifting tables club was legal. Marcus’ statements contradicted those made by others witnesses who said she and her father told the members their activities were legal.

The women, Donna Bello and Jill Platt, were found guilty of running a pyramid scheme and convicted on Feb. 20 of charges including wire fraud and filing false tax returns.
