Rothstein Sentenced to 50 years June 10, 2010

Posted by legalethicsemporium in Law, Ethics & Society.

Scott Rothstein “confesses” that he lost his moral compass….Judge Cohn is not impressed and sentences Rothstein to 10 years more than the prosecution was requesting—One wonders about lost perspective and desperation when Rothstein’s argument for a 30 year sentence was buttressed by a comparison to Marc Dreier’s antics.  Presumably Rothstein’s forging of judcial orders and fantasy settlements renders him the winner in the Dreier/Rothstein legal fraud competition. (Reminiscent of a Woody Allen comparision of the horribles and miserables.)


1. Scott - June 10, 2010

The Woody Allen line is a semi-comical reminder that we should be happy that our lives are miserable (and not horrible). I like your reference because it’s an important reminder that feeling a need for “more” in life is part of the human condition and not something we must satisfy just because it arises.
