Madoff, WaMu, Borders, Lehman, Viceroy Resort: Bankruptcy

Madoff Investment Securities Inc. seeks to recover $300 million in fictitious profits and $700 million in principal repayments.

The Wilpon group, in their 94-page brief supporting dismissal, say they were “victims” who were “defrauded by Madoff” and “never should have been targeted by the trustee.” They say there are no facts to support the trustee’s complaint.

The motion to dismiss won’t be decided until late June, at the earliest."
