4 People and Firm Sued in Madoff Case

Three lawsuits filed on Monday provided new details about what regulators say went on inside Bernard L. Madoff’s long-running Ponzi scheme, including information about who might have helped perpetuate the fraud for so long.
Three lawsuits filed on Monday provided new details about what regulators say went on inside Bernard L. Madoff’s long-running Ponzi scheme, including information about who might have helped perpetuate the fraud for so long. No one but Mr. Madoff and his accountant have faced criminal charges so far. But in two civil fraud cases filed Monday, federal regulators contend that a prominent investor and a small brokerage firm both helped Mr. Madoff sustain the Ponzi scheme by steering billions of dollars into it, in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars in fees and profits. Taken together, the new lawsuits expand on what regulators have previously disclosed about Mr. Madoff’s swindle, which wiped out customer account balances totaling almost $65 billion. In one lawsuit, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed civil fraud charges against Stanley Chais, a prominent California money manager and one of Mr. Madoff’s earliest investors, with accounts dating to 1970. The lawsuit accused Mr. Chais of deceiving his clients and ignoring obvious signs of fraud. Some of those signals, regulators say, included Mr. Madoff’s ability to comply with a request from Mr. Chais that none of the Chais accounts should ever report a single losing trade. The second civil fraud case, also filed by the S.E.C., contended that three senior executives at the Cohmad Securities Corporation, a small brokerage firm co-founded by Mr. Madoff, knowingly helped finance the Ponzi scheme and conceal it from regulators for years.
