Secret Madoff Agreement May Harm Victims

Feb. 27 (Bloomberg Law) -- Money stolen from victims of the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme is earmarked for someone who may have been an accomplice in the fraud, and the agreement is being kept secret by a federal district judge. That's the first item on the new video with Bloomberg Law's Lee Pacchia and Bloomberg News bankruptcy columnist Bill Rochelle. The log jam in the Residential Capital LLC reorganization may be broken as the result of the company's decision to terminate a pre-bankruptcy agreement where parent Ally Financial Inc. would have paid $750 million in settlement that some creditors found insufficient. Bloomberg News made news itself by prevailing on the bankruptcy judge to unseal papers in the bankruptcy of Indonesian tanker owner PT Berlian Laju Tanker Tbk. The video ends with discussion of three significant opinions from federal circuit courts of appeal.
