Emails relate to 2005 case against former AIG boss

Lawyers for former AIG bosses Hank Greenberg and Howard Smith are seeking private emails that former New York attorney-general Eliot Spitzer used in his 2005 prosecution of Greenberg for alleged fraud. Court documents say an email led Spitzer to boast to a Newsweek reporter that his “pursuit of Greenberg ‘metastasised’ his reputation”. Virtually all the charges against Greenberg have been thrown out of court after nearly five years.
