A Little Light Reading
By David Gaffen

Merrill Lynch: The Cost Could Be Fatal, details Keith Schooley’s career at an Oklahoma Merrill Lynch branch, a career that lasted one-seventh the time of his legal battle for a settlement. Schooley was fired after a year at the firm spanning 1991 and 1992, much of which seems given to reporting misdeeds–some large, some not–at the branch. His drawn-out arbitration battle failed, and with legal recourse exhausted, he wrote and self-published this gossipy tome to tell his side of the story. The foreword is written by his initial attorney, Stephen Jones, better known for representing executed bomber, Timothy McVeigh.
