TRIALS

Former FBI Agent John Connolly's trial has heated up with the testimony of Southie Hood Stevie "The rifleman" Flemmi, who is serving life in prison for various crimes. The Herald's David Ovallee reported on the trial here. 

Meanwhile in Orlando,  defense experts continued to testify about the delusional world teenage killer Michael Hernandez lived in. Susannah Nesmith covers the trial for the Herald here.

David Markus has the story of the defendant testifying in the Joe Cool case. Former State ASA Karen Gilbert cross examined the defendant who testified he was in the bathroom when his co-defendants killed the crew. The trial is expected to go to the jury today. 

Meanwhile on Wall Street the last two large independent investment banks have become "bank holding companies".  Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley will now have large deposits to finance their operations and will be less subject to investor speculation. This means the era of astounding multi-million dollars bonus's has come to an end. The NY Times article is here. 

Anybody wish they went to business school instead of law school?
