Rothstein’s Law Partner Gets 2 Years in Prison

Howard Kusnick, a longtime friend of Scott Rothstein’s and former law partner was sentenced to two years in prison Friday for his role in one of the notorious Ponzi schemes. Kusnick, 59, of Tamarac was one of Rothstein’s oldest associates, long before Kusnick joined the meteoric Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler firm in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Kusnick has maintained that he had no knowledge of Rothstein’s massive $1.4 billion investment fraud scheme. But when his friend asked for help in duping prominent car dealer Ed Morse in a legal case, Kusnick played along in a complex deception, and he pleaded guilty to a federal fraud charge. He was ordered Friday to pay $310,000 in restitution to Morse. Do you think the sentence the judge gave Kusnick was fair? Do you think he should have been disbarred?
