Michael Cohen Investigation

Special masters eyed for Cohen probe all have RE fraud experience One former judge could be selected to weed through seized records to determine existence of attorney-client privilege

Following the raid of Trump attorney Michael Cohen s hotel room on April 9, prosecutors in Manhattan have been making the case for internal control over the review of the records they seized, which were taken in connection with an investigation of Cohen and his personal business dealings.

Cohen, who joined the Trump Organization in 2006 and remained Donald Trump s personal attorney after he was elected president, has been under criminal investigation for months, the Justice Department revealed last week.

Cohen s attorneys asked Judge Kimba Wood to employ a special master to preside over the seized records and determine if their usage in the investigation would violate attorney-client privilege laws. Prosecutors have insisted that no special master is necessary, given what they see as Cohen s weak arguments that he has any real clients apart from President Trump. But in the event that Wood appoints a special master anyway, prosecutors have recommended three judges for the post, all of whom, it turns out, have experience with cases involving fraud or money laundering in real estate.

The lawyers, however, are being chosen for their expertise in electronic discovery and attorney-client privilege. They would simply make determinations as to whether certain records can be viewed and would not participate as investigators.

Frank Maas, a former federal judge in the Southern District of New York, assisted in a 2016 case brought by Preet Bharara against Rockwell Gajwani, the CEO of Manhattan real estate firm Trevi Retail, who pleaded guilty上海夜网论坛 上海夜网 to charges of tax evasion and embezzling $1.6 million from his real estate business. (The company is now known as Hubb NYC.)

Another recommended special master, retired federal judge James C Francis IV, assisted the bench as a magistrate judge during the 2017 prosecution of Robert Guzman, a Bronx man accused of running an apartment search scam that charged customers to view apartments but then never showed them. Francis was also involved in a $100 million Russian money laundering case in 2013 that alleged the laundering of illicit funds into American real estate via Cyprus shell companies.

The third recommended special master, former federal judge Theodore Katz, did pre-trial work on two civil cases involving some of New York real estate s biggest names. A decade ago, pre-trial, Katz supervised a $750 mill上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区ion lawsuit brought by investor Leslie Dick against Donald Trump, Sheldon Solow, Harry Macklowe, George Soros, Conseco, Vornado Realty Trust and other plaintiffs, accusing the latter parties of participating in a money laundering and bid-rigging scheme in their own hunts to buy the General Motors Building in Midtown.

232 East Broadway

After rejected air rights sale, Ascend Group changes plans for LES爱上海同城 爱上海 site Developer will now just build one tower

A rendering of 232 East Broadway (Credit: S4 Architecture)

Instead of two new towers in the Lower East Side, Ascend Group and its partners now plan to build one and convert an adjacent landmarked nursing home into a condominium building.

The development team seeks to construct a 28-story, 55-unit condo building at 232 East Broadway, and to renovate the former Bialystoker nursing home at 228 Broadway by creating 18 condo units, sources said. The project is being developed by Ascend, Round Square Development s Rob Kaliner and Optimum Asset Management Group.

Kaliner said on Tuesday that Ascend had rebranded 上海同城对对碰交友社区 上海夜网论坛as Round Square. But his partner Wayne Heicklen — the second half of Ascend —  said the company, which is the holding company that appears on deed and mortgage documents for the property, remains intact.

The development team has not yet filed plans for the project with the city Department of Buildings.

Ascend originally sought to purchase 155,000 square feet of air rights from the neighboring Seward Park Cooperative, but the complex s board ultimately rejected the $54 million deal in June. Some residents had objected to the size of the new towers. At the time, it was reported that the developer would instead move forward with two smaller buildings of 17 and 20 stories.

Under these new scaled-down plans, the new building and the renovated nursing home will together span 128,000 square feet, and will share amenities, like a swimming pool and movie sc爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛reening room. Space 4 Architecture is the design architect, and SLCE Architects is the architect of record for the project.

The development team also plans to build a private park for residents at the former Dora Cohen Memorial Park site, where the developer had initially planned to build another tower.

Kaliner said he s working with the Landmarks Planning Commission to upgrade the nursing home and give it more of an aesthetically pleasing feel.

We will be gut renovating the existing structure, designing this building with very different finishe上海夜网 阿爱上海同城s based on the historical nature of the building, he said.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Ascend Group had rebranded to Round Squ爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城are Development, based on information provided by Robert Kaliner.

Robert Shapiro

Luxury home developer Robert Shapiro arrested on federal charges over $1.3B Ponzi scheme Shapiro, who owned Woodbridge Properties, faces conspiracy and tax evasion counts

Robert Shapiro

A former luxury real estate developer in Los Angeles was arrested on federal charges, accused of deceiving thousands of investors in a Ponzi scheme worth $1.3 billion. The charges against Robert Shapiro, who ran Woodbridge Group of Companies, came Thursday, despite his November settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over similar charges in which he agreed to pay the government $120 million.

Shapiro and two former directors of investment at his company— 上海千花网论坛 上海千花网Dane Roseman and Ivan Acevedo— have been accused of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a release. Shapiro was also charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering and evasion of paying federal income taxes.

All three pleaded not guilty, and Roseman and Acevedo were both released on bond, according to the Los Angeles Times. Shapiro was ordered to remain in jail.

“Mr. Shapiro denies the allegations in the indictment and will vigorously defend himself in the appropriate forum,” his attorney Ryan O’Quinn said in a statement. Attorneys for Roseman and Acevedo could not immediately be reached.

The indictment accuses Shapiro, Acevedo and Roseman of targeting older investors who had Individual Retirement Accounts with high-pressure sales tactics, deception and manipulation. They allegedly described the investments as “low risk,” “safe” and “conservative” but actually used money from new Woodbridge investors to pay off prior Woodbridge investors.

The indictment also accuses Shapiro of using about $35 million of investor money for his own benefit, spending $3.1 million on chartering private planes and travel, $6.7 million on a personal home, $2.6 million on home improvements, $1.8 million 上海千花网龙凤论坛 上海千花社区on taxes and more than $672,000 on luxury cars.

The firm ran its scheme through offices across the country, including in Boca Raton, Florida, and Sherman Oaks, Califo上海千花社区 上海千花网交友rnia, and the indictment for Shapiro, Acevedo and Roseman came out of the Southern District of Florida, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. They had their first court appearance in the Central District of California.

Shapiro also caused most of the Woodbridge companies to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, causing their investors to take significant losses, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Shapiro agreed in November to pay $120 million to the SEC as part of a settlement agreement over the Ponzi scheme. The SEC filed charges against 13 individuals and 10 companies in December in connection to the scheme as well.

Two Beverly Hills properties tied to the firm sold in January, including a mansion at 711 Walden Drive that sold for $13.8 million, and a home at 1阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城118 Tower Road that sold for $7.3 million.
