Ex-NFL star: Scott Rothstein's law firm owes money

Legal Business Posted on

Retired NFL star Warren Sapp is asking to recover over $100,000 in a trust account left by the law firm of a man who pleaded guilty to running a Ponzi scheme.

Attorneys for Sapp filed a federal court petition Monday in Scott Rothstein's criminal case. The attorneys say Sapp has interest in money the government is seeking in a forfeiture action.

The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman had nearly $103,000 in a trust account with the law firm when it collapsed after financial fraud came to light.

Sapp's trust account is not connected to the billion-dollar Ponzi scheme Rothstein allegedly ran out of his Fort Lauderdale law office.

A court hearing has been scheduled involving the petitions of Sapp and others seeking trust account funds.
