Helen Chaitman Doesn’t Know When to Quit

Last week, in writing about the settlement between Irving Picard, the Madoff trustee, and Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, the owners of the New York Mets, I mentioned the ongoing litigation brought against the trustee by a lawyer named Helen Davis Chaitman, who claims to represent some 800 Madoff victims, both net losers and net winners (who, I should point out, have very divergent interests). Inevitably, I received some emails from Chaitman clients who chastised me for daring to criticize, as one of them put it, “a woman who has been a champion to so many elderly victims, logging many pro bono hours, fighting for victims whose gains would mean her own loss, and giving those victims a voice in the courts.” Et cetera. Read New York Times report here.
