Ernst settles the Lehman case for $ 10 Million. Like Enron,Lehman cooked up a scheme to move liabilities off their balance sheet.This was known as Repo 105. Ernst was the auditor when Lehman evaporated. Ernst previously agreed to pay $99 million to settle various civil suits.
Ernst did not admit nor deny wrong doing. Ernst claims accounting issues did not cause the firm total.That is probably true but hardly accurate.
Ernst gave Lehman a clean bill of health knowing about Repo 105. In its last and same year,CEO Richard Fuld paid himself $ 300 million, and never was a charged with anything.
I don't understand now Fuld is out on holidays while Skilling and Fastow went to jail,do you?

We have been following the case of the 12 , now make that 11, Atlanta educators who chose to to to trial.
Eleven were convicted.I did not see a link on proquest but ten have still not made a deal. Judge Baxter put sentencing off a day urging please, but an agreement would require educators to admit wrong doing. the thing that is missing is accepting responsibility. One school principal says she will not admit she committed a crime.
