Russell Adler, a former name partner of the defunct Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm, has asked a judge to sanction the trustee in the RRA bankruptcy case for allegedly violating a non-disparagement agreement and accusing Adler of participating in the $1.2 billion Ponzi.

In a motion filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Fort Lauderdale, Adler moved for sanctions against trustee Herbert Stettin, alleging Stettin disparaged him in violation of a settlement reached between the parties in February. The settlement called for Adler to pay Stettin $350,000 within 30 months and barred Stettin from disparaging him.
