Getting Back to Blogging
I've been absent a lot the past few days because I've been working on my cases in the morning so I could attend and live-blog the jury selection and opening arguments of the Joseph Nacchio insider trading trial that began this week in Denver. A big thanks to Big Tent Democrat and TChris for posting in my absence.
A few things I learned from the Nacchio trial: I'm clueless about stock trading. I don't know a recurring revenue from a one-timer, a publicly stated financial target from a growth target, a sale of stock from a sale of a stock option. Nor do I want to.
I'll take kilos of pot, the legalities of wiretapping, how to cook powder coke into crack or whether lies amount to obstruction of justice any day of the week over this stuff. It's a good thing I'm not on the Nacchio jury. The learning curve would be way too steep.
Anyway, I'm done live-blogging Nacchio until the cooperating witnesses testify. That's the juicy part to me. Did they agree to tell the Government's truth in exchange for promises of leniency for their own misdeeds?
The highlight of the day for me was getting to talk to our relatively new U.S. Attorney Troy Eid in the elevator.
