All Charges Against David Stockman Dismissed
January 9, 2009
Today’s dismissal of all charges against David Stockman demonstrates what we have been arguing throughout this case: he is innocent. When Mr. Stockman was indicted, we said that there was no crime here and that Mr. Stockman would be vindicated. As we pointed out then, the charges simply did not make sense. Mr. Stockman would never have jeopardized his reputation by engaging in a scheme to defraud.
The past few years have been a terrible ordeal for Mr. Stockman. Fortunately, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York was willing to reconsider the case and our arguments, and should be commended for its commitment to justice. Now, as we predicted, Mr. Stockman, and his reputation, have been vindicated.
