Disgraced and disbarred Florida attorney Scott Rothstein managed to orchestrate a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme — but, according to a Miami federal district court jury, he’s not the only one to blame for the massive fraud. On Wednesday, after about four hours of deliberation, jurors decided that Toronto-Dominion Bank, represented by Greenberg Traurig, needs to cough up $67 million to Texas-based Coquina Investors over claims that the bank helped Rothstein in his scam. The jury found that TD Bank had knowledge of Rothstein’s false representations to investors and helped advance the fraud — the largest in South Florida’s history.

The verdict, which awarded $32 million in compensatory damages and $35 million in punitive damages to the investors, came after a trial before U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke that began in November. The Daily Business Review, our South Florida sibling publication, has a rundown of the case, which was the first of several pending suits filed by Rothstein investors looking to recoup losses to head to trial. TD Bank is also facing other investors suits related to the scheme.

“This Ponzi scheme would have been impossible without TD Bank actively involved,” Coquina lawyer David Mandel, a partner at Mandel & Mandel, told the DBR. “I think this jury was angry with them, and it showed in the verdict.”

But TD Bank continues to hold that it did nothing wrong because it represented Rothstein’s law firm, not Rothstein himself. “We still maintain that we were Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler’s bank, and that it was Scott Rothstein who defrauded investors,” TD Bank spokeswoman Rebecca Acevedo told the DBR. “We will continue to defend the bank against claims of wrongdoing.”

Rothstein pled guilty last January to operating the fraud through his Fort Lauderdale-based law firm. The fraud involved telling victims they were buying stakes in phony settlements. Rothstein used TD Bank to make payments to investors. The notorious conman is now cooperating with federal prosecutors, and seven of his employees and associates have been criminally charged.
