Think If You Had To Walk In His Shoes

jpegOne really cannot feel too much empathy for the fact that billionaire Mark Cuban was pursued by the federal government on insider trading charges.  He could, after all, afford either to fight the charges or pay the fine without feeling any pain.  Cuban decided to do the principled thing, the costlier thing, the less expedient thing and fight the charges.  Obama’s Securities and Exchange Commission pursued Mr. Cuban on civil charges and not criminal charges.  I would guess that the burden of proof is less stringent on civil cases so they took the easy path expecting Mr. Cuban like many others to buckle and pay the fine.
