Cuban May Be Going The Way Of Martha Stewart

markcuban.jpgMark Cuban, the internet billionaire who owns the Dallas Mavericks and numerous film and TV entities, is facing insider trading charges with one of his internet search engines Mamma.com, according to AOL’s news.

Cuban apparently either bought or sold 600,000 shares of Mamma.com, which piqued the Securities and Exchange Commission’s never-ending interest.

The last celebrity gazillionaire to face such charges was Martha Stewart, who had to do a small stint in the hoosgow before settling back into an unwatched good housekeeping TV show.

Cuban had been rumored to be considering buying the Chicago Cubs. Maybe the Cubs first-round playoff destruction at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers made him run home to Mamma.
