ABSTRACT
The article comments on the apparent hostile attitude of U.S. government lawyers toward big corporations and corporate bosses. Government lawyers began to display animosity toward big businesses in the aftermath of the Enron scandal. Looking at this from the outside, the author certainly gotten the impression that government lawyers are becoming too enthusiastic in bringing dodgy businessmen to justice, or at least in setting the legal process in motion.
