Happy Monday -- It's Tax Day!

Hi everyone -- hopefully you already filed your extension?

In other news, Lewis Tein sanctions hearing today:
On Friday, Lewis and Tein said in a court filing that their firm “is sincerely sorry’’ for misunderstanding an earlier order from the judge, and wrote that his “concern with the ‘source of funds’ to pay their fees never registered’’ with them.

“Through all the difficulties associated with this hotly contested matter … Lewis Tein did not make a false statement to the court, and did not violate their obligation of candor to the court,” the law partners’ attorney, Paul Calli, wrote in the filing.
Finally, here's a deeply affecting story from an FIU journalism professor that really makes clear what people are going through in these economic hard times.

And how was your weekend?

Lewis and Tein didn't understand the Judge's concern? What horseshit! Evidence of 10 million in checks from the tribe with no loan documents and they maintain that the payments were loans from the tribe to the individual member/clients of Lewis Tein. If Dresnick believes that it's time for mandatory retirement. Gotta love that smirk on Tein's face in today's DBR. I wonder if he'll have that same smirk on his face during his perp walk being escorted to jail by an FBI agent. Can't wait to see it.

That herald article did more to clarify this for me than all the postings! she is repaying money but she did not "personally" initially pay it. I dont thng judge dresnick will be happy with that semantical game.
