The Supreme Court has denied the alleged Ponzi-schemer Allen Stanford’s request for writ of certiorari, according to a letter filed by a court clerk last week. Stanford’s previous legal team had requested the high court direct the lower court send the record in the case for review.
Lawyers for Stanford are awaiting a judge’s decision on their request for Stanford to be released from federal custody and admitted to a rehabilitation program to treat his addicted to an anti-anxiety medication.
Meanwhile, several of those allegedly defrauded by Stanford say they plan to have a Massachusetts lawyer to sue the federal government for failing to take timely regulatory action against Stanford.
The letter from the Supreme Court’s clerk, filed with the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, is reprinted below.
