Not that I really care that much, but I think that this has got to be one of the most bogus cases in a long time. It was filed during the anti-Enron frenzy, but much has settled out since then - including Sam Waksal's own case. Frankly, I can't believe the prosecution hasn't dropped this, but then they're prolly thinking "big career maker" with this one, what with the notoriety and all. I would think they'd lose it but securities law is so freakish, who knows? Beats me. But my opinion is that the prosecution went after her as a high-profile scapegoat for corporate scandals, and the media thought they'd been handed a mascot on a silver platter, and neither is really willing to back down now. Because, with securities law, who knows? It's prolly 50/50, no matter what she did (or didn't do).
And by the way, I do love my "Martha Stewart's Keepsake Wedding Planner"! LOL! Well, you have to admit, when Martha does something, it is usually tops, and her new planner is simply the best - in a pretty binder, with useful lists and forms, and beautiful sections. And just $35. Dunno that I'd want her to be my mom (or my boss!), but I totally respect her aesthetic, it's had a huge influence on me.
