(If this is in the wrong forum please move.)

I know he was facing SEC charges, but I can't find any information about the trial.  Anyone know what happened?

I suggest looking before you post. This thread in this forum was updated yesterday: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=159772.20

I'm sorry I overlooked one thread out of this entire massive sub-forum of which I am not  a regular.  Besides, how was I supposed to know there would be news recently after months and months of silence?

Patronizing lecture aside, I appreciate the help.  Thanks.

Shavers was never charged criminally, so he can't be convicted.

Yeah, I was surprised to see it was a civil case.  Anyone know why he wasn't charged with fraud?

Another tip, then: if you hit ctrl-f in the browser and search for trendon or pirate you'll find it on the first or second page in seconds.

I had no reason to believe there would be anything about him on the first or second page.  This is an event that happened almost a year ago, and there has been very little news since.  It was an odd coincidence that something finally came out recently.
