A Manhattan federal judge has dismissed a class action lawsuit filed against Standard Chartered Bank by investors whose money ended up in Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, finding that Standard Chartered was right to charge fees based on the face values of investors’ accounts even though those values turned out to be fraudulent.
