Stanford Lawyer Drama Continues On to ‘Circus’ Levels

It really seemed like the craziness surrounding Allen Stanford’s never-ending stream of defense lawyers had reached its zenith in early April 2010. That was when he changed lawyers for the fourth time, and when a frustrated Judge David Hittner complained about Stanford switching lawyers “over and over again.” Judge Hittner told him that there was no guarantee he would approve further additions to his legal team.

Two months later, the drama surrounding Stanford’s legal team continues and the most commonly used word when describing the situation seems to be “circus.” Full details are available in this post on my Enforcement Action blog over at Compliance Week.
