Madoff's Lawyer Not Part of 'Madoff Diaspora,' After All

Even though his name and the names of his late parents  appear on the 162-page list of purported Bernard Madoff investors, Ira Sorkin, Madoff’s attorney, tells The Wall Street Journal: “I have never been an investor or customer of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities. I’m not going to talk about my family members.”

If the rest of the list, which was filed Wednesday in bankruptcy court, is to be trusted, CNN talk show host Larry King, baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax, movie producer Jeffrey Katzenberg and some 13,000 others may not be so lucky. The alleged Madoff victims are fanned out across the country, but residents of New York, Denver, Palm Beach, Fla. and Minneapolis seem to be among the hardest hit, according to an unfortunately named graphic published in the Journal and on its Web site. The graphic’s title: The Madoff Diaspora.
