*Ken Harrison, director and former chief executive, Portland General Electric: Sold one million shares for $75.2 million.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Houston, alleges that the named executives and board members engaged in a three-year pattern of fraud and deception that caused Enron share prices to fall from a high of about $90 a year ago to less than a dollar.

The suit claims that during that time, the defendants sold $1.1 billion in stock, all the while hiding the company's true financial condition.

Amalgamated Bank's lawsuit is among a slew of lawsuits filed on behalf of shareholders as well as employees who watched their 401(k) accounts shrivel because the company froze them just before the shares started tumbling. The suit is seeking damages of $25 billion.
