This is an insider's look at how agencies exploit their power by bullying the small and weak to control the private sector. You will hear about Mike's shrewd investigation of the investigator (FTC) which resulted in a House Oversight investigation, a stinging Congressional report about the FTC's behavior, and criminal immunity from the Justice Department for a whistleblower. The administrative case against LabMD, stayed in June 2014 when the whistleblower pled the 5th, started again May 5, 2015, after criminal immunity had been granted. Mike exposes the real time maneuvers of government lawyers and regulators who are accustomed to no one looking.

When law meets cyber security. The LabMD case even today still has a lot of "unanswered" questions... but I guess, it's all part of the cyber security regulation...
