Joe Cotchett has made a name for himself winning jury verdicts in the millions - sometimes billions - of dollars against Wall Street, big banks and other corporations that have harmed the public. He took on PG&E after the deadly San Bruno explosion, Wells Fargo for its fake accounts and Lincoln Savings & Loan for swindling investors. Cotchett was also reported to have been on Gov. Jerry Brown's short list to replace Kamala Harris as California Attorney General. The Burlingame attorney, whose star power brings Nancy Pelosi and Willie Brown to his birthday parties, joins us to talk about his career and his new book "The People vs. Greed."
