All signs are that the collapse of Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme will produce a flood of litigation. By my count, there have already been at least seven federal securities class action lawsuits against Madoff, his firm, or the "feeder firms" that invested their clients’ funds with Madoff. There have also been a number of state court lawsuits as well.


It is already difficult to keep track of the lawsuits that have been filed. In all likelihood, there will be extensive additional litigation against other feeder funds and other third party defendants, which will make it even more difficult to keep track.


In order to monitor the Madoff-related litigation in a more orderly way, I have created a table of the lawsuits that have been filed to date.


The table can be found here.


I believe the table is complete, but I welcome any additional or clarifying information that readers may wish to bring to my attention.


I will update the table as new or different lawsuits emerge. Readers are strongly encouraged to let me know about any additional litigation I may have missed or to provide me with any information necessary to make the table more accurate.
