Ex-Salomon Bond Trader Seeks Deal: Former Salomon Bros. bond trader Paul Mozer tried to resurrect a plea agreement stemming from the investment firm’s Treasury bond scandal, but a federal judge strongly hinted that he may reject the deal once more. The stakes are high for Mozer, who was indicted on securities fraud and related offenses after a plea agreement with the U.S. attorney’s office fell apart in early January. Mozer faces a possible 10-year prison term and a fine of at least $1 million if convicted. If the agreement is accepted, Mozer would pay a $500,000 fine and possibly serve some time in prison in exchange for pleading guilty to two counts of making false statements to the Federal Reserve.
