Hank Greenberg Is Headed To Trial On Those Pesky Fraud Charges After All

No word yet on if there will be a chair at the defense table for Snowball Greenberg.

Hank Greenberg's post-AIG years have been spent luxuriating in a sunset melange of QT with Snowball Greenberg and lots of litigation.

Well, according to Reuters, that mix is about to get flavored with a whole lot more of the latter.

Former American International Group chief executive Maurice "Hank" Greenberg must face a fraud trial over transactions at the insurer, New York's highest court ruled on Thursday.

Greenberg is still resisting the idea of spending time in the dock, arguing that this whole thing should have been over after AIG paid more than a billion in fines and then settled with shareholders in 2013. He's also been pretty clear in his opinion that that he left AIG in tip-top awesome shape.

But hauling Greenberg's notoriously cranky, 91-year-old ass into court is a price above rubies for NY AG Eric Schneiderman who will now (maybe) get the opportunity to prosecute Greenberg and Donald Trump for fraud in the same year.

There is no confirmation on whether or not Snowball will be afforded a role on the defense team.
