What I don't get is how a case like this can go forward when (apparently) Ken Lay's heirs can blow the raspberry and raise the middle finger toward the people from whom their late benefactor swindled his fortune.
The way Ken Lay's estate was set up, at least with the family Limited partnership, that if anyone were to even obtain a judgement against the FLP, all they would get is a charging order. No money, and a tax bill for the amount of the judgement after a 1099 was issued. It is the best kept secret of estate planning.
All the more reason to have an external hard drive. It is like Van der Sloop--No body, No Crime.
