Despite a decision in April in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission is not authorized to seek equitable monetary remedies, a New York lawyer said the government agency in charge of the enforcement of antitrust and consumer protection law creatively defied that order in South Florida federal district court.

Matthew Schwartz, a shareholder at Boies Schiller Flexner, was among the lawyers that successfully represented Robert Zangrillo, principal of venture capital firm Dragon Global. The FTC alleged that a company on which his client served as a board member and invested in, On Point Global LLC, duped consumers out of more than $100 million.
