Martha Neil of the ABA Journal inexplicably continues her shambolic reporting of the Scott Rothstein Ponzi scheme as it purportedly relates to structured settlements.
In an after thought to a story on a clawback, she writes "Convicted in a $1.2 billion swindle involving the sale of future income from nonexistent structured settlements to investors, Rothstein has been disbarred and is serving a 50-year prison term". October 19, 2011
Here's what I wrote on June 14, 2011 after another defamation by Martha Neil about structured settlements in June 2011.
It's bad enough that a reporter gets it wrong but how about the publisher. Who is Martha Neil's editor and did they EVER read the criminal complaint against Scott Rothstein? Nowhere in the criminal complaint is there a discussion of structured settlements. Case closed.
Why does the ABA, an organization whose members use and benefit from structured settlements, appear to condone the fabrication of a lie about structured settlements, a product that also benefits many tort victims?
