Allen Stanford and the Michael Scott defense

Remember disgraced Texas financier Allen Stanford, the namesake of the financial company that once operated in Memphis?

If you do, you’ve got a leg up on Stanford. The latest crazy twist in his legal case: the man says he’s forgotten events before his arrest in 2009.

From a story in Friday’s Wall Street Journal:

“R. Allen Stanford, who has gone through a carousel of defense lawyers, an addiction to medication and a jailhouse beating, is now complaining of another malady, a person familiar with the matter says: amnesia.

The former Texas financier says he cannot remember events prior to his arrest in June 2009, the person said.”
