I'm not talking about high profile media wise. I am talking about high profile in the Wall Street community. If Baker's firm can bail these guys out, believe me, it will go a long, long way as far as future representation. Keep in mind that the lid hasn't been blown off of whatever transpired. For all we know, this will be huge story in the future.
I agree! Do you really think some hoisty - toitsy redneck lawyer has a chance vs. NY, the nasdaq, all the money tied up on wall street? LOL Who knows, and at this point Im almost ready to say who cares.. This is getting to the point where its comical. How can the NASDAQ, and the Company, and the SEC, be so tight lipped about what is going on... Open the stock, open the mouths of all above, and let this fucker trade!
This lawyer is an internationally respected icon of law. Do not underestimate his capabilities. He is connected in national and international politics, and probably has spoken in person to the upper echelon of the NASDAQ and SEC already. However, it appears that this situation has already gotten out of control. Personally, I do not think that HOST will escape this situation without severe ramifications. Baker's law firm conducts business internationally, and he has many firms in major cities all over the world. I wouldn't doubt it if there was an offshore hedge fund involved at this point, thus the hiring of an international specialist such as Baker's firm. If that is the case, this situation is starting to possess the ear marks of a pump and dump.
As far as the rest of your post goes, I couldn't agree more. This charade has gone on long enough!
