Liquidating madoff

More than 10% of those assets belonged to charities and nonprofit groups, according to state officials, who accused Merkin of filing misleading documents and reports to conceal Madoff's role.Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence in North Carolina after pleading guilty in 2009 to masterminding his extensive Ponzi scheme. Schneiderman on Monday called the agreement one of the largest of its kind.New York officials said he surreptitiously funneled more than billion in assets to Madoff while personally raking in hundreds of millions of dollars in management fees.That didn’t stop the lawsuits against him, which his estate has been battling for years. It will pay more than 2 million to Irving Picard, the New York-based trustee liquidating Madoff’s firm and another million to California’s attorney general to resolve a related class-action lawsuit, Picard said Friday in a statement.The deal “underscores the tenacity of the teams who continue to deliver additional recoveries for Madoff’s victims,” Tracy Cole, Picard’s lead lawyer on the Chaise case with Baker & Hostetler in New York, said in the statement.Picard even sued Harris in 2012, alleging her lawsuit interfered with the collection of assets needed to help compensate victims.Early in the case, before Chais died, he clashed with Picard repeatedly in court, including after the trustee allegedly threatened Goldman Sachs to get the bank to block access to his personal bank account.
