Chicago jury awarded Lewis Borsellino $11 million in fraud suit against former NYSE President

In 2009, a Chicago jury sided with our client, former CME trader Lewis Borsellino, ending a nine-year business partnership dispute against former NYSE President Gerald Putnam. The jury awarded Mr. Borsellino $11 million, finding he was cheated out of a stake in a company that Mr. Putnam eventually sold for tens of millions of dollars. Mr. Borsellino alleged he was tricked out of his share in the firm, Chicago Trading & Arbitrage, for $250,000, less than 1 /100th of what it was worth at the time.
