A report by an independent law firm and a bankruptcy court review by former U.S. attorney general Richard Thornburgh tie ex-WorldCom CEO Bernard Ebbers, other executives and auditors to the firm's accounting scandal and a stock collapse that cost investors an estimated $180 billion. Hear NPR's Jack Speer.
