07/29/10 MR SAC still getting sued by ex-wife

Former Greenwich Time Investigative Reporter Teri Buhl Reports .....

Will Steve Cohen Settle Now?

Patricia Cohen filed an amended complaint today in New York federal court seeking a $2.7 million plus interest from her ex-husband Steve Cohen, the billionaire owner of hedge fund SAC Capital. The relatively meager sum looks a lot more realistic than the sensational $300 million claimshe asked for this past spring.

This time she’s outing the other traders who, according to the complaint, fed Steve Cohen inside information while he was still an up-and-comer. According to the complaint, Drexel Burnham securities trader Bruce Newberg and his boss Dennis Levine, who Steve and friends called the "Wharton Mafia," shared private deal-making news about RCA that ended up scoring Cohen a $10 million profit.

(Bonus archive link: Newberg and Levine were both involved in the Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky trading scandals back in the eighties, as you can see in this vintage New Yorkcolumn by Christopher Byron.)

Considering press reports say Steve is worth around $6 billion, why doesn’t he just pay her off? It could still happen. But then the guy known to bust balls at SAC would have to admit that his ex-wife's case isn't totally unfounded. That just doesn't look good, especially when you’re trying to sell a stake in your firm.

07/29/10 We Report You Decide: Did Stamford Fire and Rescue Chief Robert McGrath Get His Promotion After Working On Dan Malloy's House?

Robert McGrath was a Stamford firefighter working three days on, three days off.

On Robert's days off he operated a small heating and air-conditioning business to make ends meet.

Then this Stamford fireman got his big break....

Robert got the chance to do heating and air-conditioning duct work on the120-year-old barn that Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy was transforming into a house.

Robert also did many jobs for several of Dan Malloy's brothers.

Dan Malloy chose to use Richard who was on the Stamford City payroll to work on his future home even though there are hundreds of Heating And Air- Conditioning contractors with in a 30 minute drive of his home.

A short time after that Richard was promoted to Assistant Stamford Fire And Rescue Chief and then soon after that was appointed as the Stamford Fire and Rescue Chief.

Stamford Fire and Rescue Chief Robert McGrath later told Stamford Advocate reporter Louis Porter that the work on Dan Malloy's home did not have anything to do with his advancement to Assistant Fire Chief and later Fire Chief.

Another contractors who did work on Dan Malloy's Ocean Drive East house was Rick Sharper.

Rick told The Associated Press he got the job and dealt with Marc Lyons, a friend of Malloy who was involved in hiring city employees and contractors to work on then Mayor Dan Malloy's house.

Rick said after he did work on the mayor’s house Marc Lyons later arranged a lot of work for him at city high schools.

Marc Lyons, who was a Malloy family friend was the construction manager at Stamford High School and after the Mayor's house was completed he became manager of all of the city and school facilities in Stamford..

Stamford Board Of Finance Member Joesph Tarzia was quoted in the press saying, "The Malloy administration has reduced controls over city purchasing. Malloy dismantled the internal audit department”

07/29/10 Greenwich, CT Market Stats - June 2010

From Greenwich Realtor Scott Ewell:

For the past couple months I have been talking about the relative levels of inventory between this year and last. Since December 2009, our current year's level of inventory has held lower than the last. This discrepancy has sparked more confidence (from me) in the market turning. Now, in addition, we are starting to see a drop in inventory on an actual basis. Although, I consistently tell people to throw out any assumptions they may be able to draw from the past 20 or so years because those rules and trends do not seem to apply in today's incomprehensible market, I believe this decrease in inventory is due to the cyclical nature of the market.

August and September are funny months because summer ends and school starts. Not many families want to be looking for real estate at this time. Most families are either in contract or have bought their house so their kids are ready for school. Sellers know this, so they try to list their house before this lack of interest in moving comes up. I believe that this is what we are seeing. I'd love to state that we are going to have a run up in prices because of this tick down in inventory, but I believe that this is, in fact, cyclical.
As many of you know, I am now working with an excellent team (Al Filippone Associates - www.afahomes.com ) at William Raveis. This team encompasses all of Fairfield County, with offices in Greenwich, Darien, and Fairfield, CT. I will continue my focus on Greenwich, but now have the ability to access knowledge and experience throughout the county. In the coming months I will be working with Wendy Hinman Ryan to add color on other towns within Fairfield County to my monthly emails.
In an attempt to keep my writings interesting, I am going to start looking at the market from different angles and perspectives. If you have any ideas or requests of what you would like to see me talk about please feel free to email me at scott@elwell.com .

07/29/10 New Comment On 07/28/10 After Greenwich Roundup Reported On How Dan Malloy Was Desperately Playing The Race Card In The Democratic Primary...

onawing has left a new comment on the Greenwich Roundup post 07/28/10 After Greenwich Roundup Reported On How Dan Malloy Was Desparatelty Playing The Race Card In The Democratic Primary Emails Like This Came In:

Affirmative action most assuredly leads to the hiring of unqualified individuals despite the opinions of this writer. This is not conjecture, but fact and supported by the enforcement actions of regulators and the adopted company polices that I have witnessed during my career as an airline pilot. It is naive to believe that statutes that incorporate quotas will not result in meritless hiring and promotions. The unintended consequence of this liberal attempt at panacea is the furtherance of racial tensions as deserving individuals are cast aside by this convoluted and quite wasteful ploy to "transform" reality. Lets adopt MLK's reasoned philosophy on equality based on individual merit and merit alone.
