Enid author to sign book at Ada Sunday

[“Merrill Lynch: The Cost Could Be Fatal”] is generating ripples nationally. Schooley has been featured in an author interview in the September/October 2002 issue of Bimonthly Review of Law Books; interviewed by the Chicago Tribune; and invited to appear on radio shows.

Schooley’s book exposes a litany of wrongdoing, including a widespread cheating scandal that was twice covered up by senior management of the largest firm on Wall Street. It recounts the author’s almost 10-year war with the firm in an effort to establish truth and justice. The book shows how the “powerful and mighty” play the game inside and outside a court of law.

Schooley says he is well aware of the risks of taking on the giant corporation, a point driven home when Lloyd’s of London declined a request to insure his book. Stephen Jones, the famed Oklahoma lawyer who represented Schooley early in the conflict, has called the book dangerous because it “names names, takes no prisoners, and is explosive.”
