Enron Fraud dot Com. The law firm of Milberg Weiss Bershad Hynes & Lerach cordially invites Enron stockholders to partake in their class action lawsuit against the fallen energy baron. Great domain, great layout, great case. How could they lose?

"How could they lose?"

Well if they go fee-based...

Erm, wasn't enron's colapse caused by massive lack of money?



Enron's stock is gone, their brand is gone, their knowlage workers are gone. How could they possibly pay all these people?

Well, you can't sue the politicians who allowed the entire mess to take place, now can you?

Nobody has clean hands anymore. It seems Milberg Weiss might have its own set of legal troubles.

delmoi, read the page -- perhaps they hope to recover the "$1.1 billion in insider trading proceeds" that their injunction has frozen.

What dhartung says -- they're going after every nickel of capital gains any Enron executive ever achieved on his options and all the profits from the off-balance-sheet partnerships.

Interestingly, they're also (apparently) going after all proceeds of sales of stock by executives, including sales which actually caused a loss. (Many Enron execs sold stock in 2001 at prices lower than the exercise price of the options with which they'd acquired it.)
