October 24, 2015

I could give that a shot; however, a lot of folks would likely accuse me of doing a hatchet job on Wall Street's regulators. Frankly, a hatchet job appears in order but, okay, maybe my hand shouldn't be holding that implement. As such, I'm going to let the federal courts do much of the chopping here. READ

RBC In Breathless Arbitration Over Zombies And Beauty Parlor Fumes

At first blush, it seemed like a fairly garden-variety attempt to collect on the balance of a promissory note. Then came the counterclaim, which included allegations of an unsafe workplace, constructive discharge, and emotional distress.

Conspirators Indicted in Online Malware Attacks Against Financial Accounts

If you enjoy being scared, I guess you can watch one of the Sharknado movies or maybe go for a marathon session of some zombie television series. Of course, Halloween is coming up, so maybe just hang in there a few more days. On the other hand, some recent news stories may scare the crap out of you with just as much effectiveness. Consider the recent announcement by the Department of Justice ("DOJ") that it had purportedly shut down yet another criminal conspiracy to infect computers with botnet malware. READ
