Rothstein Firm Lawyer Lippman Is Sentenced to Three Years

Steven Lippman, a former attorney in the law firm of convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein who admitted helping the firm make illegal campaign contributions, was sentenced to three years in prison.

Lippman, 50, pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to violate banking, election and tax laws. He said he helped Rothstein’s now-defunct law firm, Rothstein, Rosenfeldt & Adler, illegally “bundle” contributions to Republican John McCain’s losing campaign in 2008 against President Barack Obama. The firm was the largest contributor to McCain’s campaign.
