Trustee targets Madoff's sons
For months, many of Bernie Madoff victims have loudly questioned the government's refusal to target the famous schemer's family. It now seems that they are about to get their wish.
Irving Picard, the court-appointed trustee in charge of recouping money from Madoff is, allegedly, planning to file civil complaints against Madoff's sons and brother. Citing $30 million that Bernie loaned to his sons, as well as a home that one son bought for $6.5 million in cash, the complaint will apparently seek more than $50 million from the family.
