TD Bank Purportedly Utilized in Rothstein Ponzi Scheme
There have been new developments in the case surrounding former attorney
Scott Rothstein and his alleged 1.2 billion dollar
Ponzi scheme, run from his South Florida Law office. A federal judge has given the
go ahead for a lawsuit against TD Bank, purportedly utilized by Rothstein
to carry out his fraudulent activities.
In a motion filed to dismiss the case, TD Bank stated that its officials knew nothing of the alleged fraud perpetrated by Rothstein.
However, U.S. District Judge Marcia Cook found that a group of Texas investors had alleged knowledge and substantial assistance to proceed with their civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and fraud claims.
Coquina Investments alleged that a regional VP of TD Bank "actively participated in Rothstein's Ponzi scheme," purportedly having signed "fraudulent documents" to enable the activities.
