MANHATTAN (CN) - A superseding indictment accuses attorney Marc Dreier of selling more than $700 million in "fictitious promissory notes," misappropriating more than $400 million of it, adds a money laundering count, and seeks seizure of more of Dreier's property, including real estate, a yacht and art works.
Federal prosecutors announced the superseding indictment on Tuesday.
Dreier, 58, founded and managed the 250-attorney law firm Dreier LLP until he was arrested in Canada late last year. He is to appear in court again on Thursday.
