Federal prosecutors have the monumental task of going through hundreds of thousands of pages of documents, while keeping an eye on protecting the attorney-client relationships in legitimate cases handled by Rothstein's former law firm.
So far, seven players connected with Rothstein's fraud — primarily office staff — have been charged, with five taking plea deals and a sixth, his former administrative assistant Marybeth Feiss, set to plead guilty later this month. Rothstein's uncle, Bill Boockvor, is awaiting trial on allegations he helped his nephew dupe investors.
Speculation about an impending multi-defendant indictment has been making the rounds in South Florida's legal community for months. Sources say it's not a question of whether more people will be charged, but how many and when.
Q: Is Rothstein still married?
A: Yes, according to his wife's attorney.
Kim Rothstein, his spouse of nearly four years, has been able to visit him in custody periodically and talk to him by phone, said her attorney, Scott Saidel.
Q: Is Rothstein done talking?
A: No. Even after his 10 days of testimony, which wrapped up on Dec. 23, more attorneys are seeking to question Rothstein about civil and bankruptcy litigation resulting from the collapse of his law firm. Cohn has already talked about holding a sequel to what was dubbed "The Big Deposition."
In addition, if any of his alleged co-conspirators decide to go to trial, prosecutors could call Rothstein to the witness stand.
Transcripts of Rothstein's final two days of testimony are scheduled to be released by Tuesday.
