The Panamanian Deputy Foreign Minister Alvaro Aleman assured that the ex-General Manuel Antonio Noriega, serving a 7 year prison sentence in France for money laundering, could be extradited to Panama in October. Aleman announced that France is expected to tell Panama’s government the exact date for Noriega’s extradition, after the U.S. government approved the solicited extradition, so he can serve sentences for up to 67 years for the crimes he convicted of.

By Thurbert Baker The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) convened last week in Washington, DC for its annual Spring Meeting. As a former Attorney General and president of NAAG, I know my fellow AGs really enjoy these gatherings. The informal setting provides a great opportunity to exchange experiences and to learn from one another. Camaraderie, a strong ethic of bipartisanship, information sharing, and working together make State AGs a unique community. With State AGs playing… [read post]

(Dodger shirt available through " target="_blank">Amazon) And my own hometown Detroit company, General Motors, filed Chapter 11 in - New York City. Texas based Enron filed in - Delaware. Delaware and New York are the courts of choice for big corporations filing Chapter 11. Why? Well, is is something of a cottage industry in Delaware, whose courts have extra judges and personnel, and, incidentally, way more bankruptcy lawyers per capita than anywhere in the world. Because, the Delaware courts… [read post]

Every once in awhile, you find a rant worthy of notice. Compliance expert Nancy Derr-Castiglione's recent "end-of-my-rope" sceeed in the ABA Banking Journal qualifies. Nancy's bottom line: consumer compliance disclosures currently required by federal and state law in connection with most loan transactions are so dense and so voluminous that they amount to an "unfair and deceptive trade practice" under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act. Obviously, Nancy's got her tongue planted in her… [read post]

That depends on the amount of your medical bills.  As long as your "reasonable and necessary" medical bills stemming from the car accident are at least $2000.00, then you can bring a claim for pain and suffering against the at-fault driver's insurance company. There are exceptions to the $2000.00 requirement.  Examples are injuries involving broken bones, scarring, or disfigurement, or, a hearing or vision loss, stemming from the accident. [read post]

While "das Volk" twist themselves into hernia-inducing pretzels of rage over banks raising fees on checking accounts and/or continuing to impose overdraft fees when a customer "overdrafts," the repercussions of Dodd-Frank ensure that such additional fees (or others) are on their way--like it or not. Banks in the U.S. are on course to lose a projected $6 billion as a result of the Durbin Amendment, part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reforms. [...] As the financial institutions seek to… [read post]

A Russian criminal court sentenced former OAO Yukos chairman and CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky to another seven years in prison last week. As if on cue, the mainstream U.S. media reported on the event as a reflection of the capricious and arbitrary nature of the Russian legal system. We really are better than those corrupt Russians, aren't we? Meanwhile, the mainstream media continues to neglect -- and often promotes -- similar mistreatment and persecution of business executives in the U.S. I mean,… [read post]

As regular readers know, I have long thought that Timothy Geithner is in over his head as Treasury Secretary. So, it stands to reason that many people continue to listen carefully to what he says, this time at the opening of the new HBO film based on Andrew Ross Sorkin's book about the most recent financial crisis, Too Big to Fail. "You can't prevent people from making mistakes," observed Geithner philosophically. "Taking too much risk and making stupid mistakes may not be a crime." Yeah, right. Try… [read post]
