What is a Receiver?

A Receiver is an individual appointed as a neutral party to take control of assets and to manage them during the period of litigation. The assigned Court provides direction concerning the Receiver’s enumerated responsibilities and tasks. The Receiver will make periodic reports which will be filed with the Court and posted on this site.

Who does the Receiver work for?

The Receiver is an officer appointed by the Court, and therefore works for the appointing judge. The Court will give specific direction to what is necessary to control and stabilize the assets and liquidate and distribute the proceeds in an appropriate and professional manner.

How do I file a claim?

The Receiver will seek approval from the Court to initiate a claim filing process and will update this Website. A deadline has not yet been set by the Court to file a claim.

Is the Receiver under any time constraints by the Court and the CFTC?

There is no specific timeline. The Receiver intends to move in an expeditious and timely manner but will be diligent with respect to the importance of the case. Even assuming success in recovering enough assets to make a distribution, that distribution will not likely occur for several months, at a minimum. The Receiver is mindful that lack of access to these funds can create a hardship. For that reason the Receiver and his team are working as fast and efficiently as possible to identify and recover assets. The Receiver requests patience as the matter progresses under the Court’s oversight.

Do you have an estimate of what percent of our original investment may be returned to us in the form of a distribution?

The Receiver and vendors that assist the Receiver are paid out of recovered assets.

The Receiver does a cost-benefit assessment of every project he pursues, and does not pursue work that is either unnecessary or not likely to produce a recovery that exceeds the cost of the pursuit.
