The Martha Saga Recounted
All of the Martha Stewart folks who have weighed in at this site, may want to go to Jeffrey Toobin's extensive piece in The New Yorker this week. While touching on some of the poor decision's by the defense lawyers, it notes again that Stewart's repeated rejections of a deal meant the prosecutors would have to go into court. They didn't make these entrapment laws, but do have to carry out the law. She ought to have taken into account the larger losses possible for herself, her company, its employees and investors.
