Don Marsh Trial Starts Today

Last updated on Monday, February 4, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Jury selection for the Marsh supermarkets vs. Don Marsh trial will begin on Monday.

WISH TV8 reports that Don Marsh, CEO of Marsh supermarkets, is accused of traveling the world and ringing up millions of dollars in expenses on the company's dime.

Don Marsh calls the suit an effort to smear and tarnish his reputation.

The trial is expected to take about two weeks if there's no settlement.

Documents say he abused his authority as CEO "to facilitate his covert use of its coffers as his own personal checkbook."

Also in documents, the company asserts that Don Marsh bought expensive gifts for family and friends but passed them off as business expenses.

In one example, the company claims he spent $1,000 for two pairs of boots - one for a guide on a hunting trip, the other for the guide's girlfriend.

And the company alleges he improperly spent thousands of dollars on travel.
