Attorney David Boden cried when he was questioned by bankruptcy attorneys, saying how shocked he was to learn his boss, Scott Rothstein, had been running Florida’s largest fraud from his Fort Lauderdale law office.

The former general counsel at Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler, though, comes off as anything but unknowing in a clawback lawsuit filed against him Thursday by the law firm’s bankruptcy trustee. He is accused of knowing about Rothstein’s $1.2 billion scam, being complicit in it and running a “sub-Ponzi.”
