Citigroup Goes Taliban on Larry Hagman

Citigroup (C) is fighting tooth and nail against Larry Hagman. The amounts are relatively small for Citigroup so why let the battle become a public relations black eye?

The message to investors is “Even if we screw you we will continue to fight you tooth and nail.” Citigroup lost the arbitration. Larry Hagman was in the right. Citigroup seems prepared to fight forever even when closure is obvious to everyone.

Citigroup is setting the psychological landscape for future clients. How many wealthy clients at Citigroup are rethinking their relationship. 

Can you see Larry Hagman as a poster child spokes person for shareholder and investor rights. You can hear the theme music now.
