SEC v Goldman Links Roundup

From the WSJ:

Goldman Sachs tumbled 14% after the SEC charged the company and one of its vice presidents for defrauding investors “by misstating and omitting key facts about a financial product tied to subprime mortgages,” the SEC said in a press release. The commission said Goldman Sachs failed to disclose vital information about a synthetic collateralized debt obligation, including the role that a major hedge fund played in selecting the portfolio, despite the fact that the investor had taken a short position against the mortgage market.

A major story, I’m just going to add links below throughout the day that I feel add interesting details and angles on it…
