A judge says $386 million is the most the owners of the New York Mets could be forced to pay to resolve claims by a trustee collecting money for jailed financier Bernard Madoff's investors.
Federal Judge Jed Rakoff noted the figure in an order issued Wednesday.
A court-appointed trustee who sued the owners of the Mets had asked for $1 billion. Rakoff tossed out most of the claims in a decision issued Tuesday.
The lawsuit had claimed that the owners of the Mets either knew or should have known that Madoff was operating a multi-decade fraud that cheated thousands of investors out of billions of dollars.
The 73-year-old Madoff is serving a 150-year prison sentence.
