Looks like Iriving Picard, the trustee in charge of finding Bernie Madoff's missing money, saved the best for last. Picard has until tomorrow, the second anniversary of Madoff's arrest, to file claims in the case and today he dropped a doozy: he is seeking $16.9 billion from an Austrian banker named Sonja Kohn. According to the suit “in Sonja Kohn, Madoff found a criminal soul mate, whose greed and dishonest inventiveness equaled his own.” Dealbook explains that this suit is the first to make a racketeering charge, under the RICO act which "allows for the recovery of triple damages." But she looks like such a nice lady!
