The Enron Story - More Sources

Last month we highlighted a Department of Justice Web site that provides access to trial exhibits from the government’s well-publicized criminal case against former Enron executives (see our post of April 27, 2006). For those interested in exploring other aspects of the Enron story, a good place to start is the Enron “topic” page at JURIST. This page brings together a news archive and links to key resources, including the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Enron page and a well crafted Wikipedia article with background facts, biographical information on the personalities, a timeline, other Web links, and a bibliography. The law firm representing Enron’s shareholders in a class action lawsuit has also provided background information and court documents on that aspect of the story.
