Frank’s in Charge

Sep
30
2003

Frank Quattrone is not a potted plant. At least that’s what his lawyer, John Keker, is probably thinking. Keker prosecuted Ollie North, the guy who wouldn’t answer any question without discussing it with his attorney, Brendan Sullivan. The Congresional lawyers got so sick of it, they told Sullivan to stop. “I am not a potted plant,’’ he told them.
Quattrone in courtroom is one cool-headed dude, up and down, getting water — the defense appears to have trucked in a case of Poland Springs — talking to the lawyers, chatting and joking with his family. You can see how he got all those deals done. We in the press corps can’t hear what’s being said between Frank and his family – his Mom and Sis came for support – but it’s not all doom and gloom. Frank has a famously wicked sense of humor.
We haven’t seen Frank’s collection of tacky sweaters yet. But there’s hope. It’s going to get chilly this week and, besides, the whole idea behind this display is to portray Quattrone as just another guy from the neighborhood who’s made good. His jurors, so far, including nurses, social workers, a speech pathologist, a graphic designer and a pastry chef. The lawyers – including one from Goldman (ha!) got booted. So did the bankers.
The WSJ does all the analysis you could ever want including some stuff about the New York lawyer who will probably be the guy who testifies against Frank.
I’m writing for The Post. Remember, it’s a tabloid, it has those little pages that are easier to read on the subway.
