Mark Cuban Offers to Pay for SEC Lawyers

You gotta love Mark Cuban. Don’t you? An energetic FrontBurnervian points us to this story, which came out right before the weekend. That Mama.com insider trading case is still dragging on, so Cuban offered to pay for additional SEC lawyers to review the documents in the case. Bloomberg reports that the SEC says “the Cuban file is so voluminous that an attorney assigned to review it would have to spend more than eight months, assuming a pace of four pages a minute and eight-hour days without breaks.” You have to figure Cuban made the offer knowing that the SEC would refuse it, making them look weak and silly. Right?
