Question about Madoff's lawyer and victims list

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by jeangenie, Feb 5, 2009.

  1. Media are reporting today that on the list of Madoff's investors/victims was his own lawyer, Ira Sorkin.

    Now, I'm no legal eagle here, but does anyone have any ideas as to how this does *not* constitute a conflict of interest for Mr. Sorkin representing Madoff in any criminal or civil proceedings?

    It strikes me as highly irregular.
