Patricia Cohen Certain She Can Find The Right Lawyer To Stick It To Her Ex-Husband This Time

The ex-wife of hedge fund honcho Steve Cohen is turning up the heat in her bitter legal battle with her former husband. Patricia Cohen is talking with trial lawyers about taking on her case after a New York appeals court revived her lawsuit accusing her ex of cheating her out of millions during their divorce more than two decades ago, The Post has learned. No decisions have been made, but she is “evaluating how to go forward,” said a person close to the case…It’s unclear whether Patricia’s current lawyer, Howard Foster, who specializes in racketeering laws, will remain on the case if a trial lawyer is hired. He was given the option to stay on, a source said. Foster is Patricia’s third lawyer since she first kicked off the case in 2009. [NYP, related]

    It’s unclear whether Patricia’s current lawyer, Howard Foster, who specializes in racketeering laws, will remain on the case if a trial lawyer is hired. He was given the option to stay on, a source said. Foster is Patricia’s third lawyer since she first kicked off the case in 2009. The previous two lawyers disappeared shortly before the 2009 trail.

    Maybe it's time for another angle — a trap perhaps? Yesterday's cop sounds promising.

    Sounds like a lovely woman. She would fit right in with the sorority sisters at Maryland.

    Ok Bess, since you changed the topic to Dogs. I wonder how Goldman's Hedge Fund Dog & Pony show up in the Bronx is going this afternoon?

    If I were Patty I'd hire a certain young lady from U of Md to do the opening and closing arguments and Geoffrey Raymond as the courtroom artist.

    If a hedge fund investor makes $5.5 million profit on a $8.7 million troubled real estate asset, estimate the recovery rate for his ex-wife 20 yrs after the divorce. Considering the damages to be $8.25M as claimed, calculate the IRR for the hedge fund investor.

    Three lawyers? How many husbands? Just trying to connect the dots.

    How about we make the statute of limitations on divorce settlements equal the length of the marriage? This damn divorce happened before the current analyst classes were born, I think she missed the boat a whiloe ago.

      Allow the lawsuit to go forward but if Stevie prevails, he is allowed to chose between having his legal fees reimbursed or giving her a cunt punt.

    This woman seems to be a hair away from wanting him killed, yet she retains his last name.
