I agree, but I do hate frivilous lawsuits like this. They tie up the courts time, and utilize resources that could be better spent on something important.

China starts formal criminal probe into politician Bo Xilai

(Reuters) - China moved quickly on Friday to announce it had formally begun a criminal probe into disgraced former senior politician Bo Xilai, hours after expelling him from the largely rubber stamp parliament and so removing his immunity from prosecution.

The announcements pave the way for Bo, once a contender for top leadership in the world's second largest economy, to face trial and likely a long jail sentence on accusations of corruption and abuse of power.

A brief report by the state-run Xinhua news agency said state prosecutors had "decided to put Bo Xilai under investigation for alleged criminal offences".

It added that they had "imposed coercive measures on him in accordance with the law", likely a reference that he was now officially in detention.

Bo's wife, Gu Kailai, and his former police chief, Wang Lijun, have both been jailed over a scandal that stems from the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood while Bo was Communist Party chief of the southwestern city of Chongqing.

The government last month accused Bo of corruption and of bending the law to hush up the murder.
The latest move comes a fortnight before the Communist Party holds a congress, which opens on November 8, that will unveil the country's new central leadership.

Bo, 63, was widely seen as pursuing a powerful spot in the new leadership before his career unraveled after Wang fled to a U.S. consulate for more than 24 hours in February and alleged that Bo's wife had poisoned Heywood.

Bo, a former commerce minister, used his post in Chongqing since 2007 to cast the sprawling, haze-covered municipality into a showcase for his mix of populist policies and bold spending plans that won support from leftists yearning for a charismatic leader.

Xinhua provided no other details, such as what charges Bo may face, saying only that the investigation was under way.

Earlier in the day, Xinhua said the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's parliament, "announced the termination of Bo Xilai's post" as the deputy to the parliament.
As a member of that body he had enjoyed immunity from prosecution.

Before Bo is charged and tried, investigators must first complete an inquiry and indict him, but China's prosecutors and courts come under party control and are unlikely to challenge the accusations.

"THEATRE"

A lawyer for Bo, who has been employed by the family to represent him, said on Thursday he was unable to say whether the government would allow him to represent Bo when the case comes to trial.
"It's theatre," said Nicholas Bequelin, a researcher at Human Rights Watch, a New York-based advocacy group, who spoke before Bo's expulsion and criminal probe were announced.

"The judiciary grinds into action only when the outcome has been determined. There is no indication we will see a genuine trial because Bo knows too much."

An official account of Wang's trial in September said Wang fled to the U.S. consulate in Chengdu, southwest China, after Bo beat him and stripped him of his police job following Wang's decision to confront Bo with the murder allegations against Gu.

Wang had spearheaded Bo's controversial campaign against organized crime, a prominent plank in Bo's barely concealed campaign to join the topmost ranks of the Communist Party.

Bo was dismissed from his Chongqing post in March, and suspended from the party's top ranks in April, when his wife was named as an official suspect in the murder in November of Heywood, a long-time friend of the couple who also helped their son Bo Guagua settle into study in Britain.

Bo has disappeared from public view since he was dismissed and has not had a chance to respond publicly to the accusations against him.

The removal of Bo has disrupted the Communist Party's usually secretive and carefully choreographed process of settling on a new central leadership.

Sharply dressed and courting publicity, Bo stood out in a party of stolid conformists, and he promoted Chongqing as a bold egalitarian alternative to China's current pattern of growth.

But Bo's promotion of "red" culture inspired by Mao Zedong's era and his campaign-style crackdown on crime prompted fears that he was rekindling some of the arbitrary lawlessness of the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s - a criticism that Premier Wen Jiabao spelled out before the public in mid-March.

Berlusconi sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud

Italy's former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi was yesterday sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud connected to his Mediaset television channels, and was banned from holding public office for three years by a Milan court.

Berlusconi was accused of having artificially inflated the price of film distribution rights bought by shell companies, then selling these back to his Mediaset empire.

The court also sentenced Berlusconi and 10 co-defendants to pay €10 million ($US13 million) to Italian tax authorities, a statement said.

The tax scam helped to create secret overseas accounts and reduce profits to pay fewer taxes in Italy.

The prosecution had asked for a prison sentence of three years and eight months for Berlusconi.
Prosecutor Fabio De Pasquale said in June that Mediaset costs for the films had been inflated by $US368 million from 1994 to 1998, and by €40 million from 2001 to 2003.

Berlusconi was at "the top of the chain of command in the sector of television rights until 1998", De Pasquale said at the time.

He had asked for a prison sentence of three years and four months for Mediaset president Fedele Confalonieri.

But Berlusconi's close aide in his business dealings was acquitted yesterday

I mean that nothing should from THIS suit.

Their claims are grandstanding.....the amount is ridiculous....and it should and will be thrown out.

The lawsuits should have a better basis than the one that was filed. They are throwing every piece of poo agaisnt the wall hoping that something sticks. Even the lawyers of that firm have ZERO expectation of it even being heard.

They are trying to make a point.

Five defendants were charged with racketeering conspiracy, mortgage fraud and money laundering. They are Kurosh Mehr, 52, of Charlotte, Ann Tyson Mitchell, 61, of Charlotte, Nathan Shane Wolf, 41, of Charlotte, Purnell Wood, 41, of Palmyra, N.J., and Donte Thorogood, 34, of Durham.

DEFENDANTS WHO PLEADED GUILTY
Of the defendants who pleaded guilty, nine are charged with mortgage fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy. They are Danielle Nicole Vaughn, 34, of Greenbelt, Md., her mother, Mary Ann Vaughn, 58, of Charlotte, Robert Mahaney, 52, of Ridgeway, S.C., Shannon Lee, 47, also known as Somer Bey, of Charlotte, Marcia Williams, 36, of York, S.C., Phillip A. Wellington, 46, of Charlotte, Crystal Goodson-Hudson, 44, of Kannapolis, Sean Dalton Williams, 41, of Orangeburg, S.C., and Holly Hardy Pasut, 56, of Charlotte.

Pasut’s attorney, Peter Anderson, said: “Pasut is a well-respected real estate agent that trusted in the wrong people and failed to adequately protect herself. Before this investigation, she was unaware of how broad federal criminal laws can reach, and while she has admitted to doing certain violations, she has fully accepted responsibility through her plea agreement. She was unaware of the larger scheme in which others were obviously involved.”

Goodson-Hudson’s attorney said she accepts responsibility for her actions and is cooperating with authorities.

Defendants pleading guilty to a charge of mortgage fraud conspiracy include: custom homebuilder Mark James Wittig, 41, of Matthews, William T. Wellington, 30, of Amityville, N.Y., Kevin A. Smith, 46, of Oxford, N.C., Jamaine Wallace of Conyers, Ga., and George Moore, 44, of Charlotte.



Federal prosecutors announced charges Wednesday against 17 more defendants in a massive mortgage fraud investigation involving luxury homes in Mecklenburg and Union counties.

An additional 14 defendants charged in connection with the long-running investigation, known as Operation Wax House, also have agreed to plead guilty, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

The charges and plea agreements announced Wednesday bring the total number of defendants charged in Operation Wax House to 81. Defendants include builders, mortgage brokers, real estate agents, appraisers, attorneys, straw buyers, a notary and a bank employee.

The charges also show the scope of alleged illegal activities is far broader than previously described.

The Enterprise, as authorities call the scheme, operated from about 2005 to the present and engaged in an extensive pattern of racketeering activities consisting of investment fraud, mortgage fraud, bank fraud, money laundering and distribution of illegal drugs, according to U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins. Members of the Enterprise also bribed bank officials and committed perjury before the grand jury, the prosecutor said.

Those involved agreed to buy homes at their true price and then arranged buyers who would pretend to have the assets to buy the homes at an inflated value, generally $200,000 to $500,000 higher than the actual price. At closing, the participants would split the difference. Many of those homes later fell into foreclosure.

The crimes involved some 80 homes and $100 million in loans, prosecutors have said. Affected neighborhoods include Chatelaine, Firethorne, Piper Glen, Providence Downs South, Skyecroft, Stratford on Providence and Woodhall.

The Internal Revenue Service’s criminal investigation division assisted in the investigation, which is ongoing.

I'm reading reports that the children of CNBC Exec Kevin Kim were murdered yesterday...exactly one day after the $43 Trillion Lawsuit story went public...sounds fishy to me. They're saying it was the 50-year old nanny, who they found bleeding from what they described as "self-inflicted wounds." I'm not buying it...this is way too coincidental. These are sick sick people we're dealing with.

Alright, this is far too much of a coincidence here. Break a big story through your news station...and your children are found dead the next day. That is fishy as hell. This is the first time I cannot honestly say "well, it still doesn't lend much credibility to this 'secret society' talk". No, this definitely does. I'm legitimately wondering how far up this goes at this point to hit a family like this with so much security. Maybe the nanny did do it...but to self-inflict (according to the article) stab wounds to the neck is very odd. Slitting your own throat, sure. But stabbing yourself in the neck just doesn't seem natural, even for the deranged suicidal person, let alone a mentally disturbed/POSSIBLY COMPROMISED person. I say possibly compromised, because it IS a possibility this nanny was talked into this, since she was an in for these assholes.
