A money manager charged with wrecking his own plane as he fled financial ruin faced nearly $9 million and possibly more in potential and actual court judgments and legal claims, according to a review of court documents by The Associated Press. It's not clear whether further fines, claims, judgments or debts could emerge, increasing the total.
It could take years to sort out the financial mess that authorities believe provided the motive for Marcus Schrenker's run from ruin.
Below is a breakdown of what's emerged so far:
_ $3.18 million sought by National Financial Services in a lawsuit filed in Indiana on Dec. 19 over losses from securities trades.
_ $2.5 million sought by insurance companies that want to recoup restitution they paid in 2007 and 2008 to six consumers who filed complaints against Schrenker, according to Georgia's insurance commissioner.
_ $1.4 million sought by Creative Marketing International Corp. in a federal lawsuit filed in Indiana on Dec. 22 that seeks reimbursement of commissions for annuity and insurance policy sales that never materialized.
_ $1 million in fines and restitution Schrenker could eventually be forced to pay after the state of Indiana accused him in January 2008 of swindling some $250,000 from investors.
_ $533,542 owed in a ruling by a Maryland judge on a lawsuit accusing Schrenker of keeping sales commissions he wasn't due.
_ $135,000, and possibly more, allegedly swindled from Delta Air Lines pilots whose retirement accounts he managed.
_ $100,000 sought in a 2008 lawsuit filed in Alabama by a man claiming Schrenker sold him a damaged aircraft.
_ $5,100, and possibly much more, in search costs he could be forced to pay after he issued what authorities now believe was a fake distress call over Alabama.
