• The jury reached a verdict on September 24, 2009, and a judgment was ordered in favor of W.

Martha claimed that she had an agreement with her broker, Bacanovic, to sell the shares if the prices fell below $60 and claimed her innocence. Later during the trial, an expert witness testified that the ink used to make the notation about the $60 dollar agreement that Bacanovic provided was not the same as other ink on that paper.

By early 1987, problems at Enron emerged. Despite the evidence of potential financial misconduct by top execs at Enron’s oil trading unit in Valhalla, N.Y., Lay allowed the execs to continue at the company. Months later, those same execs were found to have committed other improper acts that opened the company up to as much as a billion dollars in losses.

However this was not the case with Gordon Brown in the 2010 general election campaign when after he spoke to a voter in he was still wearing a broadcast microphone and was heard to say "that was a disaster" and when asked what she said, he replied: "Ugh everything!
