Broadcom’s former CFO is now a free man. A judge threw out the options backdating case that the government was trying to bring against him. It’s a truly disgusting story of government overreach and government violation of the law. Too bad nobody on the government’s side will be held accountable – like, for instance, by going to jail for breaking a law (like coercion).

Chris Coogan was thrown in jail. He, too, did nothing wrong. Luckily, he didn’t have to stay there long.
