Eliot Spitzer and excessive compensation



It happens that Judge Charles Ramos in Manhattan has presided over more than one dramatic legal proceeding touching on questions of excessive compensation for high-paid wheeler-dealers: the Grasso/NYSE case, and an inquiry into the mega-legal fees awarded in New York's portion of the giant tobacco settlement. And New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer also turned up as a key protagonist in both cases, too. It's just that -- as Roger Parloff notices -- Spitzer's role was to assail the excessive compensation in the one case and to defend it in the other. Parloff links to a profile of Judge Ramos by Reynolds Holding on the new and promising-looking website JudicialReports.com, which covers the New York judiciary and is published by the Institute for Judicial Studies.
