Having dealt with the more pressing issue of the July-ish deadline to file criminal charges against SAC Capital Advisors, federal prosecutors will entertain themselves for the next three months by trying to put more of Bernard Madoff’s friends and family in jail.

With federal prosecutors in Manhattan facing a December deadline to bring additional charges connected to Bernard L. Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, they are weighing criminal charges against several people connected to the case, said people briefed on the investigation. Among those still under scrutiny are Shana Madoff Swanson, a senior executive at the firm, and Paul J. Konigsberg, a longtime accountant in Mr. Madoff’s inner circle….

Another family member whose conduct has been examined by the government is Andrew Madoff, the younger son of Bernard Madoff and director of trading. He has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing.

They may also increase Jamie Dimon’s legal bills a bit.

Prosecutors are also investigating whether JPMorgan Chase failed to properly alert regulators to suspicions about Mr. Madoff’s business, said people with knowledge of the investigation.

    Everytime I read one of Matt's article on Bloomberg, it makes me miss him more and more. This is just getting sad

    Er but you're reading him? So there's no reason to miss him?

    On Bloomberg Matt is lead left on View and on the front page half the time. Every gold-loving "bankster" basher can read him. On DB he was the Finance Savant of Brooklyn and a galactic treasure.

    Wow, good point. Long day. I guess I miss his article WITH the accompanying DB comment section. It's not as fun when 9/10 comments say "BANKS ARE EVIL" and generally don't add anything to the conversation
