    Paul Singer Was Not As Allowed To Buy, Sell French Stock As He Thought He Was

    After more than a year of chewing on the evidence and letting the charges marinate in their minds, the people who make such decisions at France’s Autorité des Marchés Financiers have decided, oui, Elliott Associates did something wrong when buying and then selling shares of a French highway.

    Elliott Associates Winning Battles Against Argentina On Land And Sea
