Episode #17

In Alcatel,Haiti Telecom,Motorola,News Corp.,TWIFCPAVideocast,UK Bribery Act on September 19, 2011 by Howard@OpenAir

Show Notes:

  1. Bridgestone settlement
  2. The 1st UK Bribery Act waste case.
  3. The Good: the government writes a great, well-written brief in the Siriwan case
  4. The Bad: Alcatel-Lucent. Add some facts, but Howard still comes out in the same place, and goes on another rant.
  5. The Ugly: Get some more facts around the dueling Haiti Teleco declarations, and it’s still ugly.
  6. Goncalves motion to dismiss; another good government brief, and the defendant is going to lose.
  7. News Corp. and the apparent failure of its Board to do anything at all resembling governance.
  8. Motorola and the need for compliance programs to identify and adapt.

Definitely go see Tom Fox and Mike Volkov talk about private equity. Register for the October 6th event. Howard will definitely be there.


Episode #16

In Alcatel,Haiti Telecom,ICE,iTunes Podcast,Lindsey,O'Shea,Oracle,State-Owned Entities,TWIFCPAVideocast on September 11, 2011 by Howard@OpenAir

Show Notes:
Not a single technical issue for this one: no multiple-part episode because my system shut down, no nothing.  Just the show.

1. Haiti Telecom: it’s an SOE! No, it’s not! Yes, it is!
2. ICE doesn’t get en banc review. And Howard goes off on a rant against Alcatel-Lucent (and just won’t let it go)
3. Lindsey & O’Shea: the DOJ can’t seem to catch a break.  Tom takes us through the legal issues.
4. Oracle and the entire tech sector

And believe it or not, just that takes over an hour. Plus, Howard admits that he gushed like a little girl when he met the Above the Law guys. You know you would’ve too, admit it.

It’s really good to be back.
