Former Trustee Sentenced For Fraud - Santa Rosa Bankruptcy

FBI_LOGO.pngWell, maybe a bankruptcy trustee can't be sued in state court under an intentional tort theory; this does not mean a trustee can't break the law. Former bankruptcy trustee Marika Tolz was sentenced to 81 months in jail, followed by 18 months of house arrest. In May, Tolz pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in a $16 million conspiracy. Tolz had been a member of the panel of Chapter 7trustees for the US Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Florida, for more than 20 years.
