The day after a federal judge threw out the 18 criminal charges of fraud, money laundering and tax violations against him, Koerber showed up to crow at a downtown hotel wearing a black cowboy hat, and with six of his children, his wife and several friends in tow. And crow he did. It was as if the old Rick Koerber had returned with all the bluster, bluff and vinegar of past times.
