Scott Rothstein Coming Back to Fort Lauderdale to Be Questioned by Creditors

Ponzi scheme mastermind Scott Rothstein is coming to Fort Lauderdale, but not for a victory tour in ripping off more than $1 billion in his fraudulent investment plot.

Instead, the creditors who are owed money by Rothstein's now-defunct law firm are going to question him as a witness for getting their money, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Raymond Ray made the ruling today to allow Rothstein to be transported to Fort Lauderdale for the questioning, although they haven't announced when or where the questioning is taking place.

Rothstein, who's temporarily slated to serve a 50-year prison sentence, is currently in an unnamed federal penitentiary.

The judge's order limits the number of creditors allowed to question Rothstein and also makes them share the costs involved in the proceedings, according to the Sentinel.

The questioning will be off-limits to both the public and media, but transcripts and video recordings will be made available at some point after the deposition.

Weren't the "Mob" associates that Scott Rothstein helped to indite very low low level guys?  What were their backgrounds and histories?  What kind of time did they receive for shredding documents?  Is there really a tangible threat against Rothstein that warrants all of the Federal secrecy and security?  Is he really in a federal prison or is he living in some sort of protection program as Bob Smith in Idaho or Nebraska? Where's Kim? Is she still in South Florida or did she "disappear" as well.  A lot of shady stuff here with unanswered questions...I'd love to get the real story.

It turns out that Kim Rothstein was pole dancing inside the Marlins clubhouse. But after the team went on a major losing streak she was fired. Anonymous sources inside the organization all confirmed that Kim's body and face looked like a worn out sponge so she was replaced by a much younger former stripper. Marlins should resume their winning streak.

Parkland Man seems quiet these days.  Apparently the new dosage of lithium is doing the trick.

Chaz; Mommy told you to be careful, but you did not listen.  Shame on you. You were doing very well. You are a smart boy. You make Mommy proud when you are good.  Then the bad Chaz comes out and I am disapointed.  Now it looks like that nice lawyer hating ( I must agree with him) Parklandman  is not happy with you again.
