R. Allen Stanford Civil Litigation Hits the Stage

Edward F. Valdespino, partner in the San Antonio
office of Strasburger & Price.

U.S. District Judge David Godbey has started his first "clawback" trial in which a receiver is attempting to recover millions taken in R. Allen Stanford's Ponzi scheme. And he's allowing another suit to go forward against Greenberg Traurig and Hunton & Williams—in which investors allege the large firms assisted in the convicted Houston financier's misdeeds.

Godbey began testimony in Janvey v. Romero on Feb. 9, a case in which receiver Ralph S. Janvey is attempting to recover more than $560,000 that Stanford paid to Peter Romero, a former U.S. ambassador, for consulting work allegedly with Ponzi money.

And on Feb. 4, Godbey denied the majority of the motions to dismiss filed by the defendant law firms in Official Stanford Investors Committee v. Greenberg Traurig. In that case, a putative class of investors accuse Greenberg Traurig and Hunton & Williams of helping Stanford shield his "offshore Ponzi bank" from regulatory scrutiny and deceive Stanford customers into believing his investment business was legitimate.
