This is a New York Time story about an indictment of a lawyer who is accused of failing to protect his client (a corporation) from alleged wrongdoing by the CEO. The story while it is light on facts does raise an important issue. Can the attorney for the company allow the CEO to engage in fraudulent transactions or transactions that are dishonest?
On the other hand, this may be a case where a criminal defendant decides to throw his lawyer under the bus.
