MF Global, Corzine And The Path To Club Fed

The failed brokerage-and-commodities firm MF Global (in which the author invested, sadly) is the subject of a criminal investigation by the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office, according to this report (go to page 2).

Such investigations often presume guilt and sometimes work backwards, starting with the presumed wrongdoer (in official law enforcement parlance, a "target").  Observers should be patient for the findings to come out, and for justice to be served. 

As for MF Global former CEO Jon Corzine, I believe that he placed himself in greater jeopardy of being charged with any crime, merely by talking. (Don't know how? See this analysis, entitled "Corzine Becomes A Criminal," in which I predict attempts to criminalize any misstatement or incomplete recollection, however nuanced and qualified, particularly if prosecutors cannot charge him with a substantive crime.)  He is a presumptive subject and desired target -- if only for his name cachet and potential to "make" someone's career -- and on that basis alone it should be presumed that efforts to charge him are already underway.

Eric Dixon is a New York lawyer who helps people under investigation or in the process of litigation handle the stresses of being involved in our legal system, in addition to more conventional legal work like investigations and complex, sensitive situations for business and political clients.
