Mario Cuomo Will Get Into It With the Mets and Madoff

We don't envy former New York Governor Mario Cuomo: He's been tapped to mediate the epic $300 million lawsuit that alleges the owners of the Mets illegally profited from Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. Manhattan Bankruptcy Court rep Burton Lifland said a mediator was chosen because "there are special issues presented in the [suit] that suggest referral to an appropriately experienced mediator." A blackout is also a part of the deal: "no documents relating to the matter to be mediated shall be filed with the court," explained Lifland.
