Billionaire sues my former boss

25Apr08

I was checking out Decanter.com to follow up on my favorite wine story of the week — wine impressario Bruno Magrez trying to bribe journalists with free Cartier watches — when I stumbled across this much, much juicier piece of news. Apparently Acker Merrall & Condit, a former employer of mine for a very brief time, is being sued by billionaire William Koch for fraud. According to Koch, at least five of the bottles he purchased from them at auction are conterfeit.  Acker, for its part, says that if it sold counterfeit wines, it did so unknowingly. 

In the name of not badmouthing former employers (very unbloglike of me) I’ll try to show some restraint here and refrain from comment.
