The only charges resulting from a probe into alleged IPO kickbacks at Credit Suisse First Boston are those facing Frank Quattrone, whose handling of his e-mail has led to a trial on obstruction of justice charges. Quattrone is a former banker who helped take Amazon.com and Netscape public while at CFSB. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Forbes magazine's Dan Ackman, who's attending the trial.
