Eric Creizman was quoted in the South African newspaper, the Cape Town Times, in connection with the settlement of a $22.5 million criminal restitution case against Creizman LLC client David Bengis for $1.25 million. The restitution proceedings arise from a criminal prosecution commenced in 2003 under the federal Lacey Act in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, which to date, is the largest Lacey Act prosecution in the over one hundred years of the statute’s history.
