    Hey, what's this stuff about "would be named for him should his conviction be overturned"?
    I thought he was found civilly liable (by a jury?) and no crime was involved.

    What I'm more interested in is whether the finding of liability for insider trading is going to get the man disbarred on character & fitness grounds (if indeed he's admitted in the first place).
    The irony of naming a fitness center after an unfit alumnus is too much to ignore!
