After two consecutive days of inflammatory blog posts attacking the SEC’s case against Mark Cuban that appeared on Mark Cuban’s “blog maverick” website, the SEC’s deputy director was quoted yesterday in the WSJ Law Blog as saying “We’re not going to comment on anything Mr. Cuban or his lawyers have to say on Mr. Cuban’s blog and we look forward to presenting our case in court.”
Has any defendant in an SEC case ever had such a high-profile blog from which to issue statements and stage a PR battle as Cuban does? Cuban’s lawyers have clearly decided to use “blog maverick” as a tool in his defense, first issuing a statement on Monday alleging SEC staff misconduct and then another statement on Tuesday essentially laying out Cuban’s main defense that he never agreed to keep the information at issue confidential.
It will be interesting to see if any of the information posted on “blog maverick” to date or in the future winds up as part of Cuban’s trial, should the case get that far.
