On March 26, 2009, investment advisor (and law school graduate) Michael Morgan began the blog (also accessible at as "an open forum for facts and discussion about what part Goldman Sachs and their executives played in the current Global Economic Crisis." On April 8, the company sent Morgan a letter claiming that he was violating its trademark and demanding that he stop using the domains. Five days later Morgan sued, seeking a declaratory judgment that his use of the domains did not violated the Goldman Sachs trademark. In July 2009, the parties settled with an agreement that Morgan would put a disclaimer on his sites.
