Left-wing legal groups reeling from Madoff affair



The now-closing JEHT Foundation was a major backer of groups like the Center for Constitutional Rights, Common Cause, and ACLU, of Alien Tort statute litigation, and of a wide array of criminal justice reform projects, initiatives at law schools, and so forth. As noted earlier, Massachusetts law dean Lawrence Velvel of let's-hang-Bush fame was also among Madoff's victims; CCR's Peter Weiss was reported among the scheduled attendees at Velvel's recent conference on that theme.
