Eugene Plotkin—the alleged ring leader of what is, lets face it, our favorite insider trading scandal—is still in jail. Yesterday’s New York Post reported that Plotkin has been unable to make bail since he was arrested on April 11, unable to convince friends to support the $3 million bond set for his release. Now Plotkin has canned his laywer, Martin Schmukler, a mob-and-drug lord type, and hired of a proper big law firm, white-collar crime lawyer.
His new lawyer, Edward Little (pictured here), was formerly a federal prosecutor and now runs the white-collar-crime practice at Hughes Hubbard & Reed. Little tells the Post that he's confident his client will make bail soon.
