Madoff Trustee Fights Milberg Founder’s Effort to Move Lawsuit

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The trustee liquidating Bernard Madoff’s firm opposed an effort by Melvyn Weiss, the disbarred co-founding partner of the law firm Milberg LLP, to move a lawsuit to district court.

The trustee, Irving Picard, who sued Weiss and other defendants in bankruptcy court demanding the return of money withdrawn from Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, said Weiss’s search for another judge was “a waste of time and resources,” according to a court filing today.
