"Goldman Sachs hires law firm to shut blogger's site."

I wouldn't have noticed this blog if I hadn't read about the attempt to shut it down.

If the owner of the site is complying with the law, and Goldman-Sachs manages to shut him down, doesn't that prove his point?

Hilarious. Someone nobody knows of or cares about is criticizing us..

Let's publicize it! And spend a bunch of money on lawyers, too!

It could be corporate humor. Let's shut down a conspiracy theory site.

"noticed"

God bless Mr. Morgan and his service to this country.

Beside the connection between the S&P500 low of 666 and the Mark of the Beast, I think we should investigate the connection between Goldman's Sac and Rachel Maddow's vicarious obsession with the Tea Bag movement.

Oh, wait, its Goldman Sachs? And it's the Tea Party movement? And Rachel Maddow is...

Never mind.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that sending a frivolous "cease and desist" letter under these circumstances is malpractice.

Lawyers are always supposed to watch out for their clients' interests. Sending such a frivolous letter under these circumstances shows extremely poor judgment on the part of whatever lawyer was dumb enough to sign his name.

Good one. And if you're feeling some animosity towards a certain airline, you can check out www.untied.com.

No points for guessing which airline.

Daryl - you're dreaming. To be censured by the State Board would require them doing something unethical or illegal. Wall Street law firms would never do that.

I hope that if his website is taken down, someone can keep a copy up on another site.

Besdes, someone has to, finally, bring the rather untransparent Hank Paulson into the light of day. He either truely thought the sky was falling (in which case he is as dumb as his former boss) or he executed a nefarious plot that enriched his friends and blew a giant hole in the leaky McCain boat and sunk his campaign.

God I love the smell of conspiracy theories in the morning

It would probably have been cheaper if Goldman Sachs woud have tried to by the domain from the guy first.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

Mike Morgan is kinda famous among traders and investors that don't listen to CNBC and WSJ and the like. Goldman knows exactly who he is.

His fund was up over 100% last year. He also is a bit of a philanthropist in that his minimum investment is 25K. People netting 100% returns for their clients usually have minimums North of 10 Million. Actually, if you guys have 25K or more to invest, you could do worse than call him up.

He's also been sued by Lennar Homes after calling attention to their shoddy workmanship on his blog and Lennar ended up dropping the case. Represented himself.

Goldman Sachs is about to learn the hard way how utterly stupid it is to try silencing a blogger.

Some advice for the fools:
The first rule of holes is: "When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging"

Goldman-Sachs is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful corporation I've ever known in my life.

Emblematic of the arrogance of the financial industry.

Odd that the site's actual content is ignored over the lawsuit brouhaha. It's similar to how we think about our elections, focusing on the horse race than substance.

If they lied to Congress, there should be charges.

If needed, will Professor Althouse be submitting an amicus brief defending free speech?

The devil made them do it.

Ann, you're such a dimwit. Didn't you know that the first amendment is about protecting strippers and Larry Flynt, not political speech or actual truth telling? Even McCain and Feingold understand this.
