The Enron Watch VIII

The Associated Press has an interesting article on the bankruptcy examiner report in the Enron case. The report is sharply critical of Enron’s banks and auditors, who are alleged to have assisted the company in its fraudulent transactions. The bankruptcy examiner, Neal Batson, has made some controversial requests of the court including that he and his team be protected from having to produce documents or be questioned by third parties.

Quote of note: “Batson, in his lengthy final report, blamed top company executives as well as former directors, accountants, attorneys and some large investment banks for the energy trading firm’s financial collapse. Plaintiffs in class-action lawsuits want Batson to be available for subpoena because he could potentially be an important witness as a result of his reports.”
