I read this in the Statesman Journal today.
A judge overseeing a civil lawsuit in Nassau County separately froze the assets of Madoff's brother, Peter.
Initially, Peter Madoff's lawyer claimed the freeze was so tight, he didn't have money to buy bread or take the subway. The judge responded by loosening his spending to $10,000 a month.
Madoff's sons also have to return $31 million in loans they took from their parents. So next time your kids ask for a treat that costs less than a dollar you might not feel so bad for spoiling them just a little.
This didn't make me cry but it did make me laugh.
