A funny, anti-Enron flowchart:

That date just kills me. The company is two weeks from an armageddon meltdown and they don’t know it yet. They’re aware that they’re danger, and the meters are going into the red, but they have no freaking idea the total hell that is awaiting them. Tick tick tick.
This exchange is just maddening. You have to believe me that it goes on for a while after this but I’m just too sick of the whole thing to post it all. It seems that Ed Tomko has another trial in New Jersey and thus needs more time to prepare for his client, Rex Shelby’s, trial. But Gilmore is incredulous. She simply refuses to believe that Ed Tomko could have a trial in New Jersey so she CALLS THE JUDGE to confirm that Ed Tomko is telling the truth.
This woman is loco.
Arthur Andersen letter acknowledging Andy Fastow’s divestment from LJM, with Andy’s signature at the bottom.
This looks like Enron General Counsel James Derrick has sent a memo to V&E attorney James Dilg proposing language to ask Andy Fastow about his involvement in LJM.
I’m not positive that’s what’s going on but that’s what it looks like.
David Bermingham of the NatWest Three is quoted through-out this report. This statement bothered me a great deal:
Mr David Bermingham told us about his experience of being extradited to the United States under Part 2 of the Act (commonly known as the “NatWest Three” case). He said that “with Article 6 [right to a fair trial], we knew we were always going to lose because it has long been European jurisprudence that the standard test that you must meet in order to demonstrate that your chances of a fair trial are slim is flagrant breach.” His case relied on Article 8 [right to private and family life]:
“what we argued [...] was it was neither necessary nor proportionate to extradite us because the case not only could but should have been heard in the UK because all of the facts, all of the evidence and substantially all of the witnesses were here.”
He concluded that “if we stick with the current framework of the Extradition Act there are basically no protections [of human rights]”.
It bothers me a great deal that he always believed he would lose.
The DOJ was asking permission to read some testimony into the record from other trials, to whit Joe Hirko’s testimony, David Duncan’s, and Kristina Mordaunt’s testimony to the SEC in order to impeach those witnesses.
