Stanford sues those who prosecuted and investigated him

R. Allen Stanford, indicted and held without bail for securities fraud since 2009, has sued U.S. prosecutors and FBI agents for “abusive law enforcement.” He claims they launched a civil case against him only to gain information about the criminal case and to prevent him from using his money and wealth to aid his defense, according to Bloomberg. Neither the SEC or the FBI had any comment though several law experts told the news service that Stanford’s suit faces an uphill battle.
