Guest: Attorney Joe Cotchett
They say he has a rage for justice, and he has used it to file and win massive lawsuits against a who’s who of American greed and corruption. Now, he thinks it’s time for a few bankers to go to jail. He is powerhouse attorney Joe Cotchett. The Game is economics and greed. The Game is on.
We're joined by one of the nation’s most prominent and effective plaintiff’s attorneys – Joe Cotchett, named one of the top trial lawyers in the country by just about any law publication or association that keeps track of these things. To name just a few – he has sued Bernie Madoff on behalf of the clients he defrauded, won a historic $3.3 billion verdict against S&L crook Charles Keating, sued the Bush administration for outing CIA operative Valerie Plame and he sued the U.S. government for abandoning more than 8,000 children born in the Philippines to American servicemen and he’s suing Goldman Sachs.
