A cursory check of the Zeek rewards docket file gives us the new docket entries below. Most notable is the appearance request for Ira Sorkin, one of Bernie Madoff’s attorneys. In addition, there is a Motion to remove the Receiver and another opposing the appointment of an Examiner for the affiliates. The games begin anew!!!

I can see why Trudy Gilmond is a bit upset, when one sees this:
The preliminary ZeekRewards records that we have reviewed show that you received $1,367,850.10 from ZeekRewards but paid in only $3,105.00. Therefore, you received $1,364,745.10 of the money lost by victims that must be returned to the Receivership estate.
The Proposed Intervenors are “net winners” as that term is defined by the Receiver, and each has received notice from the Receiver that she likely will be subject to a “clawback” action. Gilmond Decl. and King Decl.
She also mentions a defective subpoena, indicating she has not paid much attention to the fact that the Receiver is more than happy to reissue the Subpoena and send it several ways. The amount of money she made in Zeek may well be why she is trying to get the Receiver “un-appointed” because she figured out Bell is not playing when it comes to clawbacks.
I have uploaded these new documents onto the Files website. They are worth a read.
