Steven M. Lippman is sentenced to three years in federal prison for his involvement in the Ponzi scheme master-minded by his law partner Scott Rothstein.
The Daily Business Review article on Lippman's sentencing (not available on the internet), quotes Lippman saying of Rothstein to the judge, "He had this way of making wrong sound right."
