Mark Cuban Provides Perspective on Phil Mickelson Situation

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was hit with a civil lawsuit in 2008 from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which accused him of insider trading. He was eventually cleared, but not before he felt his reputation was dragged through the mud.

So not surprisingly, Cuban is paying attention to the situation surrounding Phil Mickelson. The world’s 11th-ranked golfer hasn’t been charged with anything, but has been contacted by the FBI about an insider trading case that the FBI and SEC are investigating. They’re looking into some trades that Mickelson and Billy Walters, a Las Vegas gambler, made involving the company Clorox around the same time investor Carl Icahn was trying to acquire the company.

Mickelson maintains that he’s done “absolutely nothing wrong,” but Cuban knows from experience that people sometimes jump to conclusions before due process has taken its course. So Cuban took to Twitter on Monday to weigh in on the Mickelson case:
