re: #80 Killgore Trout

There’s no legal requirement for him to actively manage the company. He was just signing the paperwork. There’s no evidence he did anything illegal.

I’d agree that trying to go after him for doing anything “illegal” is a dead-end. Better instead to ask a very serious question: “If what Bain was doing while he was gone is not acceptable to him, then why didn’t he do anything about it?” He can’t argue he didn’t have the power, because he was CEO, chairman of the board, and sole stockholder. If he’d wanted to toss the rest of the board out on its ear, he had the power to do so.
