Summary
The epic story of the rise and fall of William S. Lerach, once the leading class action lawyer in America and now a convicted felon. For more than two decades, Lerach threatened, shook down and sued top Fortune 500 companies, including Disney, Apple, Time Warner, and--most famously--Enron. To the people he championed, he was the plaintiffs' Robin Hood, a one-man posse fighting corporate villains. Then the man who brought corporate moguls to their knees fell prey to the same corrupt impulses and paid the price by disgrace, disbarment, and time in federal prison. If ever there was a modern Greek tragedy about a man and his times, about corporate arrogance and illusions and the scorched-earth tactics to not only counteract corporate America but to beat it at its own game, it is Bill Lerach's story.--From publisher description
