Today continued the testimony of Paolo Pellegrini, who was involved in the CDO deal in question and ended up making 20 million dollars from that deal.

Barely veiled contempt colored many of the exchanges between Mr. Pellegrini and Mr. Martens. When the S.E.C. lawyer asked the witness to find a particular section of a document, Mr. Pellegrini leaned back in his chair, casually sipped from a cup of water, and drily asked, “Do you mind locating it for me?”
