Talented economic crimes prosecutors leaving USAO (UPDATED)

Three of them that I know about:

Jeffrey Neiman (pictured), who is one of the leading tax prosecutors in the country, and was part of the UBS team, is starting his own firm and will be sharing space with Fred Hadaad in Broward.

Ryan Stumphauzer, who is the Deputy Chief of Economic Crimes and the Health Care Fraud Coordinator, and Ryan O'Quinn, who was Senior Counsel at the SEC and is now a securities prosecutor, are forming a partnership and will be practicing in Miami.

Three good guys. I'm sure this is going to be tough on the economic crimes section.
UPDATED -- I forgot to mention Andy Levi who recently left the economics crimes division as well, and is now at Nardello as "head of the Miami office."
Levi and O'Quinn were running the Mutual Benefits case (the expected 8 month trial before Judge Jordan), so it will be interesting to see what happens there.

I agree with you, three good guys. Anonymous above probably doesn't know his head from his ass. Probably thinks all the innocent folk at FDC are the good guys.

Dude, the beat will go on. In any event, there are still very talented people there:

Peter Forand
Cristina Perez-Soto

You print a derogatory comment about the way someone looks, but you don't print my insightful comment?

#Struthious! indeed.

No reason for that kind of language on the blog and I think DOM has indicated in the past he will edit it (despite the fact that it is criticism of him).

This blog is helpful and informative. It is more widely read than people think. Posts like this one are part of the reason why.

As for the MBC case, haven't a bunch of people already pleaded guilty and been sentenced?
