Madoff's Judge to Hand Down the $$ Smackdown
Oh yeeeeeeahhh, so, this Madoff ponzi scheme is set for some court time! So let's meet Hon. Denny Chin, who will be laying the court smackdown.
Hon. Chin is the first Asian American federal judge outside of Hawaii and California and has extensive experience with the law. Known as a soft spoken, yet tough judge, he's sure to lay the law of the land onto Madoff.
Some highlighted cases include dealing with a man who ate copious amounts of cheesecake and pastrami while on the Atkins diet and subsequently sued the company behind the Atkins diet after he went through angioplasty.
In Fox v. Franken, Chin denied Fox News (who alleged a trademark violation) an injunction against Al Franken's "Book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right."
He was also given the Google Book settlement when the previous judge died.
Hon. Chin also presided over the criminal trial of Oscar Wyatt [Texas Oil Billionaire], who was accused of making kick-backs to the Hussein regime during the UN Oil for Food Progam.
He was appointed to be a judge in the Manhattan federal court, known to be one of the busiest U.S. courthouses, by former Pres. Clinton.
I can't wait to see what happens. Good luck Hon. Chin!!
