United States Supreme Court Denies Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Criminal Case Against R. Allen Stanford

In 2012, a jury convicted R. Allen Stanford of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and mail fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341, 1343, and 1349; four counts of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1343 and 2; five counts of mail fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1341 and 2; one count of conspiracy to obstruct a Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) investigation in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1505 and 371; one count of obstruction of an SEC investigation in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1505 and 2; and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1956(h). The United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas sentenced Stanford to a term of 110 years in prison, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit unanimously affirmed the District Court’s judgment. Stanford then filed a petition for writ of certiorari in the United States Supreme Court. On November 28, 2016, the Supreme Court denied Stanford’s petition, thus upholding his 2012 conviction.

For those who missed the original claims deadline

I have had several victims – who for whatever reason missed the registration deadline last September and have asked me what they need to do to get their claim registered now. I have been speaking to Baker Botts and this is the reply he has sent to me:

“Generally, if a claimant failed to file a claim with the US receivership prior to the September 1, 2012 bar date, such claims are forever barred as against the US receivership estate, per order of the Court. If there are extenuating circumstances that constitute good cause, the Receivership will consider the circumstances and make a determination whether to recommend acceptance of the late claims by the Court. Given the notice provided, however, we expect that good cause will be a difficult threshold to meet. If claimants wish to submit requests to accept late claims to the receivership, they can use the contact information below.

Nonetheless, claimants who filed claims with the Joint Liquidators prior to September 1, 2012 but did not file with the U.S. receivership by that date may be allowed to participate in future receivership distributions if the Receiver determines the claimant has a valid claim and the claimant agrees to jurisdiction of the US Court. We will communicate directly with claimants who filed with the Joint Liquidators before the US receivership bar date with the appropriate form(s) to execute for the purpose of ensuring that such claimants agree to the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court in Texas. Only after we have done so and received the appropriate forms back from the claimants will notices of determination issue to those claimants. Even if such claimants are allowed to participate in future distributions from the receivership, they will not be eligible to participate in the current distribution that has already been approved by the Court.

Regards,”

It would appear that if you missed filing your claim with Janvey (Gilardi), you are now bared from registering – except for special circumstances as above. I do feel sorry for all those who have missed out and I am sorry to have to be the bearer of such bad news. Let’s hope you have all registered with Grant Thornton. Sadly I cannot help those of you who missed last Septembers deadline with Janvey.
