The New York Times is running background on the upcoming case U.S. v. Milberg Wiess (.pdf) in which Vogel, a Florida real estate developer intentionally invested in stocks of a particular company in the belief that it was on the verge of collapse. This was a rational thing for Vogel to do only because the resulting losses were the real investment, enabling him (with others) to have a shot at being the ‘largest loser’ in the case, and under securities law, naming his lawyer to the lucrative lead counsel position. Milberg Weiss apparently then compensated Vogel, illegally, from a cut of the law firms fees.
