    In its advisory role for El Paso (EP) in its $21B sale to Kinder Morgan, Goldman Sachs (GS) was on every conceivable side of the deal, and EP may have unwittingly sold itself to Kinder Morgan at far too cheap a price, Andrew Ross Sorkin writes. "Goldman’s brazenness in this deal is nothing short of breathtaking… Other firms have conflicts, but rarely do you hear about them being so incestuous."

The actions of EP CEO Doug Foshee and Goldman Sachs (GS) leave shareholders with “a reasonable likelihood of success in proving that the merger was tainted by disloyalty," the judge says.
