SIPC - Initial Interim Distribution Of Recovered Funds To Madoff Claims Holders
"While we cannot predict the timing of rulings on these appeals, we maintain that the appeals of the Picower and other settlements are frivolous and will be dismissed, at which point the Trustee will immediately seek the Court's permission to allocate the more than $5 billion in recovered funds to the Customer Fund and distribute those funds as quickly as possible," said David J. Sheehan, counsel to the Trustee and a partner at Baker & Hostetler LLP, the court-appointed counsel to the Trustee.
"The Second Circuit's recent ruling upholding the Trustee's net equity definition was a major victory for customers with allowed claims," he
added, "however, until all net equity appeals are resolved, we must still take a 'worst case' approach and calculate payouts and reserves as if appellants had prevailed."
In addition to Mr. Sheehan, the Trustee acknowledges the contributions of the Baker & Hostetler LLP attorneys who worked on the distribution and related filings: Seanna Brown, Jacqlyn Rovine, Thomas Wearsch, and Brian Bash.
"We are pleased that the recovery efforts have resulted in another significant distribution," said David J. Sheehan, Chief Counsel to the SIPA Trustee.
