Interesting that he was a midlevel associate.

Guess he wasn't paying attention during the 90's o-riffic insider trading video from the SEC they show at orientation.

Corporate lawyers make all their money off of advising people doing shady shit like this.

I met the guy when I summered at R&G. Did some work on a pro bono case for him. Seemed like a really nice guy, although a bit on edge at times. This is quite surprising, but who really knows what lies in the hearts of men...

Are you implying that The Shadow works for the FBI?
