There was a victim list published with a document on the docket years ago that I can look you up, but the information is out of date and doing so for more than shit and giggles is pointless.
You need to contact the Receiver to see if you’re on the list. His website is at http://www.nasi-receivership.com/
As you probably already know, this is not an official site and I am not the Receiver. The Receiver’s official site is located at http://nasi-receivership.com. On there, you’ll find his email address and phone number as well as the Investor Questionnaire and Tax Questionnaire. These are the best methods I know of to contact him.
On October 31st, the Receiver filed a plan to begin the claims process. Unfortunately, it was denied on December 4th. Without the court approval, the plan cannot proceed.
The good news is that the victims are a lot closer to seeing checks than they were three years ago when this long process started. With the mess that Ed & Joel made of the books, I’m not shocked that it’s taken this long.
The plan filed was basically confirming the victim’s claim amount with the victims. If a victim disagreed with the claim amount, they’d have 60 days to reply in writing with documentation to back it up. The Receiver and the victim would then try to resolve any discrepancies and if they couldn’t then a judge would resolve it for them.
So, we’re in a holding pattern again until a plan is approved by the court.
You can help…but since navigating PACER is…stupid sometimes, I don’t recommending trying unless you already know how to use PACER.
If you know how to use PACER you can help out by adding RECAP to your browser and downloading missing documents using that browser. So you don’t have to waste money searching for the court case, I’m going to put links on each library page for easy access to that case’s docket report page. Remember, don’t download any document that RECAP is telling you is already uploaded to their archive. Someone else could have already pulled it and I just haven’t gotten to it yet. Also remember that PACER doesn’t give you $15 free a quarter, it’s just if you use less than $15, you don’t owe it. But if you go over $15, you owe the whole thing (that’s the $15 plus however much you went over). Be careful. It adds up fast and the billing history takes a while to update.
PACER, the system which provides public access to court records, charges $0.10 per page – including dockets and searches. Downloading everything as it appears is just not in my budget, so I download the dockets and the most important looking entries first and then catch up on other ones when I’m under budget.
They are so very, very wordy. For instance, on a docket I just updated today, it read:
NOTICE OF NON-OPPOSITION to NOTICE OF MOTION AND MOTION for Order for Approval of Settlement with Berwyn Friedman and Elaine Friedman 112
“Notice of Motion and Motion” appear more times than I’d like to say. And they have to say the entire title of documents every time. It’s insane.
