NEW YORK, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Hall of Fame baseball pitcher Sandy Koufax and World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein are among well-known people listed as customers of accused swindler Bernard Madoff, according to new court papers.
Among the thousands of others on the roster are U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, imprisoned class-action lawyer Melvyn Weiss, and Madoff's sons, Mark and Andrew, and his brother, Peter.
The 162-page document was filed late on Wednesday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York as part of the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC by a court-appointed trustee to recover assets for defrauded customers.
In all, five lists were filed with the court, labeled Customers, Vendors, Employees, Brokers/Dealers and Other Parties.
The customer list contains names and addresses of individuals and institutions. No amounts of money were included in the lists. The lists were put together by AlixPartners LLP, a firm assisting the trustee in reviewing books and records.
One of Madoff's lawyers, Ira Lee Sorkin, is also named on the customer list.
