Fun with e-mail

Oops. According to the ABA Journal Online:

A misdirected e-mail from Credit Suisse helped set the stage for two lawsuits filed this week by two private equity firms seeking to purchase Clear Channel Communications, the New York Times reports.

The suits accuse Credit Suisse and five other banks of breaching a contract to finance the $19.5 billion sale and interfering with the purchase agreement. The court filings come less than a year after the buyers, Bain Capital and THL Partners, received an unusual e-mail from Credit Suisse. The July e-mail contained confidential documents discussing how the banks planned to renege on terms of the lending agreement, the Times story says.
