Attorney Bill Scherer filed an amended complaint today on behalf of investors who lost around $100 million due to Scott Rothstein. Among the new defendants: Irene Stay, CFO at the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm.
When the law firm's phones were ringing off the hook from bilked investors when Rothstein took off for Morocco, Stuart Rosenfeldt, co-owner of the firm, pressed Stay for confirmation of money in the operating and trust accounts, states the complaint.
"Eventually Stay relented and began inconsolably crying repeating the phrase, "I don't want to go to jail."
Stay could not be reached.
