Corzine defrauded many people, and I'm sure more than a few of them weren't the people you want to defraud.  Hmm...

It's probably not unreasonable to have some suspicions, given the sleazeball father's history and the possibility some of his victims weren't very nice or patient people.

Judge Rules Suit Against Corzine Can Move Ahead
Parts of Suit Dismissed, Including Claims Against PricewaterhouseCoopers

By Jacqueline Palank

A federal judge allowed MF Global Holdings Ltd.'s commodity customers to move forward with a class-action lawsuit against former Chief Executive Jon Corzine and other officials, although the judge narrowed its scope.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero did dismiss some claims against Mr. Corzine and others related to MF Global's collapse in 2011 and dismissed all of the customers' claims against PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, MF Global's former auditor.

Judge Marrero, who has previously compared MF Global's collapse and the wave of litigation it spawned to a "massive train wreck," wrote in his ruling on Tuesday that he had hoped those involved in litigation could resolve the matter "in a just and efficient way."

Instead, the judge wrote, "wasteful and rancorous litigation" will continue to unfold as customers await compensation.

Last month, Judge Marrero denied Mr. Corzine's request to dismiss a similar lawsuit brought against him by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. A spokesman for Mr. Corzine couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

MF Global filed for bankruptcy protection in October 2011, exposing a $1.6 billion shortfall in its brokerage customer accounts. According to the CFTC's lawsuit, that action violated federal laws requiring commodity futures brokers to keep customer funds separate and barring them from using the funds elsewhere.

In the class-action lawsuit, MF Global's former commodity customers blamed the shortfall on the allegedly "unlawful conduct" by Mr. Corzine and others. They said the firm's liquidity crisis was brought on by an "ill-conceived business model" devised by Mr. Corzine, the former governor of New Jersey. ...

No matter what you think of the man and his unethical politics, the suicide of a child is a horrible thing to go through.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Hypothetically, even worse would be the murder of a child, knowing that your own criminal activity led directly to the death (allegedly).

It looks like a probable suicide. The young man had emotional and drug abuse issues.

Point well taken.
