King of Torts sentenced to 15 years in federal "palace"



The Miami Herald(via ILR) reports that self-styled King of Torts Luis Robles has been sentenced to 15 years at Club Fed, for defrauding over 7000 clients.

Robles and his firm siphoned off more than $13 million from asbestos clients between 1989 and 2002, according to the indictment. Rather than pass the money to his clients, Robles used it to purchase apartments in Los Angeles, New York and Colorado as well as a 9,000 square-foot mansion on Biscayne Bay and to finance forays into the movie production business.
