Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne took out a full-page ad in this morning's Wall Street Journal shredding billionaire Steven Cohen for his hedge fund's indictment by a Federal Grand Jury earlier this week.
Byrne's animosity didn't come out of nowhere — on a 20o5 conference call the CEO of Overstock.com said that "Sith Lords" were naked short-selling his stock and destroying the company. He later identified them to be SAC's Steve Cohen and Michael Milken.

"Congratulations on the indictment, Stevie, and remember: roll early, roll often. You friend Patrick M. Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com," it reads. Major schadenfreude.
