Sorry, Angelo Mozilo Can't Be Sued: He Is Sick

Tyler Durden's picture


After years of evading the tentacles of the US government, yesterday the crosshairs of American justice (the civil, not criminal variety) which may be blindfolded but certainly has an offshore bank account, finally locked onto the orange man who made over half a billion between 1999 to 2008, according to compensation-research firm Equilar, not to mention saddling Bank of America with the worst Easter egg M&A transaction in history. Well, it turns out the US government may not be able to sue the Moz after all. The reason? He is sick.

From the NYT:

In 2011, the United States attorney’s office in Los Angeles decided not to file criminal charges against Mr. Mozilo. But in recent months, the office’s civil division has turned the spotlight back on Mr. Mozilo, whose company originated mortgages that went to people with little income to repay them, causing devastating losses for investors who bought the loans.


But a complication has emerged: Mr. Mozilo’s lawyers have cautioned the prosecutors in Los Angeles that their client has a serious illness. The prosecutors have sought Mr. Mozilo’s health records, the people said, though for now the case remains on track.


In a statement, Mr. Mozilo’s lawyer, David Siegel, said that he would “not comment on reported rumors concerning any investigation.” He added, however, that “there is no sound or fair basis, in law or fact, to pursue any claim against Angelo Mozilo. This story has gone on more than long enough; Mr. Mozilo stands virtually alone among banking and mortgage executives to actually have been pursued by this government and already paid a record penalty” to the S.E.C.

So, if he coughs, or mysteriously turns from orange to green or any other random color, you must acquit (pending receipt of a few hundred millions in the abovementioned offshore bank account of course).

All criminals, and criminal lawyers, know that 'health complications' can be used as leverage with DAs or Crown Attornies. Mozilo has money

to hire BIG Law which means he can pay the 'cartel's' price to get-out-of-jail-free with the fiat currency that he ripped off from subprime borrowing loans that TBTF was purchasing off of him by the truckload.

Mozilo is not the first criminal to play the 'sick card' and he will not be the last either. Back in the 80s a mafia dude used to walk the streets of Brooklyn in his PJs and house coat with requisite slippers just to avoid going to jail or court. Sociopaths like Mozilo know how to game the system and that is empirically demonstrated by the amount of money he stole outright through subprime loans to Muppets that later went into default and foreclosure. Mozilo's largesse has yet to be felt by society IMHO. Furthermore, we are no longer in a growth model and Mozilo made all his money during the 'good times' so that he would be well leveraged for the bad times that would most certainly follow.

Undo all healthcare legislation and all of sudden CTs are $50 in cash.

CTs aren't anywhere close to $50 and our aware that the overwhelming majority of people in India neither have access nor can afford the out-of-pocket costs of a CT scan.

Why the people who act as if we should go back to a cash-predominant system in HC are either imbeciles or cravenly deprived and willing to write off large segments of the population.

Most likely this orange colored fool has got terminal skin cancer. Having been married to a nurse who worked in a practice that specialized in skin cancers, I can see the orange man had set himself up for the worst form of skin cancer. It doesn't matter how small the little spot on you skin may be, but if it is the right form of cancer, the cells from that little cancer quickly enter the blood stream and you are fucked!

I still remember the stress it was on her to be with patients who came in for a small splotch on the skin and found out it wa a death sentence. The cancer is quickly removed, but the cells are racing through your blood stream looking for new homes.

If Mozilo has this form of cancer, then revenge will be ruthless to him and all that money he has means sweet fuck all to him.

Money, it is less important than your family and your health, we all need enough for a decent life, but to place all lifes value on fucking green paper? You are a fool to do it.

I will never forget- just before the housing implosion- the idiot Cramer has Tanzilo on his Mad Money show. As Cramer is touting Countrywide stock on the program- Tanzilo is selling his shares like a madman. Cramer says, "it's your company, you are entitled to take a little profit off the table...or something to that effect. That was the moment when I discovered Cramer was a douche bag. That was the last time I watched his dumb ass show. Taking millions of shares, selling them to the public, and knowing full well your company was insolvent- is a criminal act. Tanzilo should be in prison.


There has never been a more crooked fucker than Tanzilo. I'd ask you to read up on this guy- but it ain't worth the time I wasted on it.

Cramer should be euthanized. Move him up the line to October's poster boy for euthanasia.


Cramer is like a whitehead you cant get rid of, even with a razor blade.

No one with half a brain has assets anymore. Having them makes one a lightning rod for lawsuits.

Owning a number of anonymously held corporations in foreign districts with vaguely identifiable holdings is the modern way.

The fix has been in on this deal since, well, the beginning.  I realized it in May of 2008, before anyone in the mass culture even admitted there was a problem.  That was when I read that then-Candidate Obama had received more campaign contributions from Wall Street than either Candidate McCain (remember when we thought Republicans specialized in pandering to wealth?) or Candidate Clinton, sitting Senator from New York and spouse of the (until then) most Finance subservient President we had ever had.  That piece of news told me the crisis was real, was looming, and the deal had already gone down to shield the guilty and put it all on the public tab.

The fix was further broadcast in early October, 2008, when both Candidates McCain and Obama said, if elected, they would nominate as Secretary of the Treasury one Timothy F. Geithner.

After that, there really wasn't any point paying attention.  And when Lanny Breuer told "Frontline" they wouldn't prosecute anybody in Finance because if they lost they'd look bad and besides it might hurt jobs, it had become utter farce.

So of course these guys will pay nominal fines, which really amount to fees to cover the paperwork to dispose of all the evidence of criminal wrongdoing.  They're paying about what it costs for a good shredding service to come in and clean up the mess; that's all.  The profits have been locked in for the Wall Street companies.  The bonuses have been paid.  The $1 Trillion per year for 5 years has been exhanged for worthless derivatives, and the money recycled into Treasury Bonds, which are then bought again by the Federal Reserve.

In a sense, there really isn't any point in the Department of Justice (?!) going after Mozilo.  It just saves us another act of farce.  Farce has to be fast, crisp, fresh and new.  Otherwise I'd rather have a root canal.  We're there now.

Papa Doc Barack and Schmucky Schumer were the two most 'decorated' ($$) Wall Street politicians, yet incredibly as that fact is, he can be elected as a Prez twice and claim to be a champion of 'main street,'  to the adulation of the neo-peasantry of Amerika and Agitprop media.

My 72 yr old geologist buddy with prostrate cancer got the IRS on his ass over a employee withholding tax dispute. Old and sick didn't deter them. After forcing him into personal bankruptcy, forced the sale of his home and lake property at auction at the bottom of the market in 08, they then garnished his direct deposit social security check.

The worry nearly killed him.

Live from Media...."After years of evading the tentacles of the US government..."  Ever heard the term Friends of Mozila?  He was a partner of Freddie, Fannie, Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, along with his very powerful special friends - Democrats Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank.   Both among the most slimy self aggrandizing lifetime federal pols of the past 35 years.  As corrupt as the GOP is, they have called repeatedly for the sunset of the two monster GSE (Government Sponsored Enities) Freddie and Fannie...even GW Bush publicly called for their dismantling to shrieks of social injustice from the filthy DemPervs.

He helped increase the size of public debt. $23 trillion to be exact went to the big banks and financial services industry. Clowns like Mozilo were too big to fail. The American taxpayer was not.

Please don't forget that the TARP slush fund and the gov't accquistions, even if temporary, of BOA, C, AIG etc. following the credit freeze near revolution shielded all the defrauded "investors" from their just due.  They bought the derivatives, the MBS, CDS, and all the other financial vehicles.  Now as most here know, the fragility of the world finanical system is cast in stone, and we await, when all is said and done, OUR fates.
