SEC Goes After Mark Cuban . . . Again. (Or Whatever Happened to No Double Jeopardy?)

When our founding fathers sought to protect our freedom from government abuses, they specifically mandated in the Fifth Amendment that the feds cannot prosecute a man twice for the same alleged crime. In other words, no double jeopardy.

So why the heck is the SEC going after Mark Cuban again for the same allegations after their flimsy case has already been dismissed?

Oh I’m sure there is some lawyerly bull manure excuse as to why this is supposedly not double jeopardy. But I’m not buying it. This is wrong. It’s prosecutorial abuse. And I wish Cuban would be allowed to sue the SEC to Hell for violation of his civil rights.
