#1 I'd like to see the details, but this is probably as good a civil recovery as anyone's ever going to get.

Criminal punishment is another matter.

#5 The SEC says the basic facts of the complaint are that Madoff committed a $50 billion fraud and told his sons his investment business was a sham. Madoff told them he had "absolutely nothing," that "it's all just one big lie," and was "basically, a giant Ponzi scheme," according to the complaint.

Maybe it's just me, but wouldn't that make the "restitution" part of the deal a bit difficult? But, then again, I'm not one of them financial geniuses at the SEC...

#6 The SEC is covering its own tracks that a public trial would show gross incompetence at best and implied collusion at worst. It's just another serious indication how compromised the SEC people have become in regulating the individuals and organizations in the 'business'.

#7 No problem, just give $50 billion of TARP 2 to Madoff so he can make restitution. I'm just surprised Obama hasn't picked Madoff as head of the Social Security Administration.
