David Dorsen presents in detail why he believes that, because government personnel concluded that his client Michael Lauer was guilty of securities fraud, they disregarded or evaded established rules and procedures to “nail” the presumed culprit. Our legal system will remain worthy of trust only if claims of miscarriage of justice are professionally examined, as in this book, which is well written and eminently readable. --Abraham Sofaer is George P. Schultz Senior Fellow Emeritus at the Hoover Institute, Stanford University, and a former United States District Judge, Southern District of New York, 1979-1985
David Dorsen, who has written penetrating books on Justice Antonin Scalia and Circuit Judge Henry Friendly, presents allegations I’ve never seen in my decades in the world of finance. Dorsen describes how federal judges wiped out three flourishing hedge funds, their investors, and their manager, who had never been sued or even accused of wrongdoing. It is a must read. --Stanley S. Shuman is a senior advisor and chairman emeritus of Allen & Company.
