Supreme Court Rules Allen Stanford Ponzi-Scheme Victims Can Sue Third Parties – Law Blog – WSJ

Victims of R. Allen Stanford’s $7 billion Ponzi scheme can sue law firms and other third parties on allegations they aided the fraud, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.  The court, in a 7-2 ruling written by Justice Stephen Breyer, said the victims’ class-action lawsuits were allowed even though a 1998 federal law largely prohibits state-law class-action claims for securities fraud.
