A federal judge sentenced Howard Vogel to three months in prison to be followed by two years of supervised release for his receipt of kickbacks in taking on the role of a plaintiff in suits brought by securities law firm Milberg, formerly known as Milberg Weiss. Vogel was also ordered to pay a fine of $4,000. Earlier, he forfeited $2 million and paid back taxes of $550,000 as part of a plea agreement. Following a federal probe, the law firm settled the case against it by agreeing in June to pay $75 million.
