A lawyer who spent 29 years in-house at Bear Stearns has been given the green light by a Manhattan judge to testify as an expert witness in an arbitration against his former employer. Lawyers for Bear Stearns had sought to block Raymond Aronson, a former senior counsel in the legal and compliance department, from testifying in an arbitration brought against the bank by Keefe, Bruyette & Woods over allegedly overpriced bonds sold by Bear Stearns' hedge funds nearly three years ago.
