Forensic accountant Tracy Coenen has been dismissed from a $270 million defamation lawsuit filed against her, convicted fraudster Barry Minkow and others.
Coenen hails her victory on her Fraud Files blog.
Minkow, you may recall, is the one-time entrepreneurial whiz turned felon after his ZZZZ Best carpet cleaning company collapsed under the weight of a Ponzi scheme he engineered. After his release from prison, Minkow became a minister and self-proclaimed fraudbuster. That is until he was charged last week with conspiracy.
Coenen has done occasional work for Minkow, though she is not involved in the matter that led to Minkow latest troubles.
