Victims of Bernard Madoff will get another chance at recovering $343 million from Citigroup Inc. after a federal appeals court overturned a ruling dismissing a claim against the bank.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in New York on Monday reinstated a suit against Citi by Irving Picard, the trustee charged with recovering money for Madoff’s victims, over funds transferred to the bank. Picard claimed Citi failed to act on red flags concerning Madoff, but a bankruptcy court dismissed the suit, finding the trustee had not shown the bank acted with “willful blindness” to possible fraud.
