Update -Dreier (Heard About This One?)

I still can’t understand why some frauds receive much publicity, while others equally deserving and in the public’s eye receive next to no attention.  This Connecticut fraud involved an attorney who single-handedly brought down a multiple office law firm employing hundreds of lawyers and staff.  Yet the only place I see any media coverage is within the Connecticut Law Tribune, and that’s likely only because it involved a lawyer and law firm.  Mr. Dreier allegedly embezzled $400 million dollars – that’s a lot of money.  Granted it’s not Madoff’s “billions”, but what he did effected hundreds of employees of the firm as well as his victims.  Here’s the story in today’s paper.
