It will be a good Thanksgiving for five former floor traders. The Wall Street Jrl reports here that in the "interests of justice" prosecutors have decided that these cases should not be pursued. It is not easy for the government to decide not to pursue cases they were working on, but it is an important step for prosecutors who serve as "ministers of justice." A good Thanksgiving to the floor traders and also to the prosecutors who realized that mere advocacy is not the role of those who serve in the government.
