Pasabog! FilAm Judge rumored to handle Bangladesh complaint vs RCBC
It seems like the assigned judge to the Bangladesh Central Bank case against RCBC is a lot closer to home. New York Judge Lorna Tiangco Schofield is allegedly the justice assigned to rule over the money laundering case.
Schofield is one of the justices appointed by former US President Barack Obama. The abogada is also a Filipino-American who used to represent the Philippines in renegotiating its foreign debts back in the 1980s.
Back then, Schofield was just a young lawyer in a New York law firm. She specialized on litigation of complex commercial matters including the regulatory and white collar crimes.
Sounds like conflict of interest?
