The Madoff Fallout Continues: Now for the Auditors
Posted by Christine Hurt

The SEC has now chargedFriehling & Horowitz, P.C. with securities fraud in connection with acting as auditor for Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC.  Press release here

Whatever this accounting firm did since 1991, it didn't seem to audit anything in connection with BMIS.  I can't even imagine a defense that the firm would have in a situation in which it signed off on financial statements that were completely fabricated.  In the words of the press release:  "Friehling essentially sold his license to Madoff for more than 17 years."
