The recent legal case against Ken Lewis and Bank of America proved just how critical the Judge selection in these SEC-spearheaded cases can be. The case of the Securities and Exchange Commission v. Goldman Sachs & Co. et al (Southern New York District, 10-3229), has been assigned to Judge Barbara S. Jones [2]. The Temple University JD grad’s career revolves around Organized Crime & Racketeering (two specialties that will be particularly appropriate); she also served as Assistant US attorney for the NY  Southern from 1977 to 1987. Most importantly, she was assigned to the Southern District Court in 1995 on the nomination of one William Jefferson Clinton, following the recommendation of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, both certainly not of Republican persuasion. Following today’s disclosure that the SEC vote was executed along party lines with Democrats voting against the squid, it is not too surprising that Judge Jones seems to have Democratic roots. We are currently tracking down Judge Jones’ donation record. We don’t think we will be surprised.

Full career of Judge Jones according to the Federal Judiciary Center [3].

  • Special attorney, Organized Crime & Racketeering, Criminal Division, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1973
  • Special attorney, Manhattan Strike Force Against Organized Crime and Racketeering, U.S. Dept. of Justice, 1973-1977
  • Assistant U.S. attorney, Southern District of New York, 1977-1987
  • Chief, General Crimes Unit, 1983-1984
  • Chief, Organized Crime Unit, 1984-1987
  • Adjunct associate professor of law, Fordham Law School, 1985-1995
  • First assistant district attorney, New York County District Attorney’s Office, NY, 1987-1995

We refuse to comment on the name of the lead SEC attorney in the case, Andrew Matthew Calamari.
