It was pointed out in the article, that it is rare for a federal judge to dismiss a suit this early in the process. Below are also links of a heated email exchange between Mark Cuban and the Dallas based SEC Attorney, Jeffrey Norris, which had occurred previous to any charges being filed by the SEC against Cuban. Norris accuses Mark Cuban of being un-American by contemplating the distribution of Loose Change Final Cut.

A federal judge in Dallas has tossed out the Securities and Exchange Commission’s insider trading suit against Dallas businessman Mark Cuban, dealing a surprising defeat to the regulator in one of its highest-profile civil actions.
Bill Maher brings up "Pet Goat incident" on 1st show back w/ Mark Cuban, Catherine Crier, Tony Snow, Matt Taibbi and PJ O'Rourke
Just ran into the clips of Bill Maher's 1st show back and there were some interesting moments to be had. Reflecting on last year, I still think his big interruption moment of 2007 was rejuvenative on all accounts. Yes, it could have been done with a little bit more finessing, but more important is that it was done. The perfect could have become the enemy of the good in this case. And it got people talking. We need more interruptions done strategically. What we want is people talking, debating, raising the issue. There are many fronts and faces in this challenge. The civil rights movement successfully found a place for the different strategies and styles of Rosa Parks, Malcolm X and MLK. Bill Maher and the rest of corporate media have a long election year ahead of them. It could get more interesting than anyone can imagine.
Society's conspiracy against conspiracy theorists
By: Brian Feltch
Last week, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thrust himself in the public's crosshairs when he announced that his production company, Magnolia Pictures, will distribute Loose Change, an incendiary documentary claiming 9/11 was an inside job. While the public loathing and countless gallons of op-ed ink dedicated to crucifying Mr. Cuban does not come as a surprise, it illuminates an important and pervasive trend in our modern global society. When issues that make people squirm are brought to the fore, debate is hastily labeled conspiracy theorizing and those engaging in that debate are considered foolish fanatics. This is poisonous to the free flow of ideas and, ultimately, the quest for a truthful and complete account of history. For scholars to come to any sound conclusion surrounding important historical events, any reasonable debate should be addressed fairly.

A couple of months from now, I believe, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will bathe in the well-deserved glow of adulation that comes with winning an NBA championship.

I was recently elated to hear the news that Charlie Sheen was going to do the narration of Loose Change Final Cut and Mark Cuban was offering to bankroll the popular 9/11 movie through his distribution company Magnolia Pictures.
Well, my grandeur was cut short when I remembered a recent incident that just happed within the past month. It involves, Mark Cuban, a You Tuber called Halifaxion, and the complete culling of massive amounts of 9/11 truth videos.
First, let me first explain just who Halifaxion was and what roll he played. Halifaxion was the biggest 9/11 truth activist on You Tube. Over the past few years, Halifaxion managed in collecting a huge plethora of almost 200 incriminating video clips including news broadcasts, interviews, and clips from various documentaries. There were hundreds of thousand of web sites linking to Halifaxion's videos. He also had accounts on both Google Video and iFilms where he offered his alternative theories about 9/11.

Charlie Sheen Says US Gov't. Behind 9/11
The Post’s Page Six reports that Charlie Sheen believes the United States government planned 9/11—literally, not just by running the country that managed to inspire such hatred. Apparently, Sheen is following up his prostitute charity work by narrating a version of the loonier-than-grandma-on-ecstasy YouTube documentary "Loose Change," which claims that a corrupt faction within the federal government orchestrated the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. According to The Post, Sheen is “in talks with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's Magnolia Pictures to distribute the film.” He has also requested a new independent investigation into the attacks, in case, you know, past probes missed the “How To Devastate A Country” manual by the White House.
