Mark Cuban Insider Trading Case Dismissed (Sort of)
I'm not a basketball fan until the Lakers get to the semi-finals but I enjoy watching someone go toe-to-toe with the SEC and come out ahead. The court has dismissed the insider trading case against Mark Cuban but gave the SEC the right to amend. The decision can be accessed here.

Review of My Supreme Court Book on Bankruptcy Litigation Blog
Boy, to be included in the same anything with Ken Klee is probably the highlight of my career. Steve Jakubowski of the Coleman Law Firm in Chicago has written a review of my book, Bankruptcy Jurisprudence from the Supreme Court. You can access the review here. The review is posted today on his exceptional blog - Bankruptcy Litigation Blog. Steve reviews Ken Klee's new book on the Supreme Court as well as mine and opines that they would be good reading for Sonia Sotomayor.
My book is available on Amazon. Let me know what you think. JH
