Who’s behind attack on Eagle Bank?

There are questions about who is beyond the secretive Aurelius Value, which published a critical report about Bethesda-based Eagle Bank. The report, which said the bank was providing loans to companies its chairman was personally invested, caused the bank’s stock to drop significantly. The stock research website has used similar tactics to reduce the value of other bank stocks in the past, but lawsuits to try to identify the person or persons behind the website have failed or are ongoing.

Moon’s country club bill could generate $10 million for Montgomery County

Del. David Moon has proposed state legislation to change how country clubs are assessed in Montgomery County that could generate about $10 million per year in tax revenue for the county, according to a state fiscal analysis. Currently, most country clubs in the county are assessed at land values of $1,000 per acre under agreements with the state intended to prevent them from developing the land. The low assessment rate reduces the club's property tax payments. [Seventh State]
