The legal wrangling by Holmes, Balwani, and Bankman-Fried goes on and on and on. The bills must be staggering.

The mockery and the nerve shows clearly that these people still have know remorse for what they have done. Total disgrace. Caught buying a one way ticket to Mexico hours after her verdict. Courts still did not remand her. Still was able to be free on bail. Pathetic .
