A judge has dismissed part of a civil case filed against an accounting firm that worked for Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler before the Florida law firm collapsed under the weight of a $1.2 billion fraud allegedly engineered by its chairman. The lawsuit claims the accounting firm is liable for the loss of more than $100 million the plaintiffs lost in convicted fraudster Scott Rothstein's settlement scheme, contending the accountants should have been aware Rothstein was running a scam and may have participated in it.
