An attorney with the New York City Law Department who had a gambling problem was arrested Tuesday for mortgage fraud that involved inventing a lawsuit and forging the signature of a bankruptcy judge. Hugh Zuber, an assistant corporation counsel who works in the special federal litigation division, allegedly used the Corporation Counsel's office for a meeting with one of his victims in one of two schemes to defraud property sellers of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
