Subject: RE Rothstein Rosenflelt [sic] and Adler
I learned of some very distressing news yesterday. Rothstein Rosenfeldt and Adler will be asking us to appoint a receiver for the law firm today. Please whoever draws the case try to set the motion today because of the amount of clients and money involved. Also if you have a case with the firm please be paitent I don't know if the lawyers will come or not and if they do come there is no money at this point to go forward with the case or pay firm employees. They need to a receiver apointed a quickly as possible to marshall whatever is left of the assets.
