Like so many others, he can tell when the SEC is not doing its job.

You got that right B. McLeod!

I’m torn twix my desires for our eToys case. To have a cut through the manure justice like Judge Judy or His Honor Rakoff presiding is absolutely necessary, given the issues of willful blindness & federal venality duplicitous.

At the same time, how wonderful would it be, in our eToys case (where I’m alleging Goldman Sachs & Bain Capital are guilty of Civil RICO violations) - to have an attorney in your corner such as His Honor Rakoff?

In our case, where the SEC has destroyed the files a dozen times;
the SEC stands for “Selective Enforcement Agency”.

And “that” SEC won’t touch a hair on the head of Goldman Sachs and/or Bain Capital

No matter how overwhelming, profuse & irrefutable the evidence may be.

Censorship is one of the main reasons that ScreenHunter has a job.

Would that Raj Rajaratnam had, in fact, been sentenced by Judge Rakoff rather than former-Judge Richard Holwell whose case it was. I was surprised to see such a glaring error in the Journal’s print edition and am even more surprised that it hasn’t yet been corrected online. As a general matter, the profile of Judge Rakoff was informative and well-written however sketchy the fact checking may have been.
