A suit has been filed seeking $198.7 million from Bernie's brother, two sons and niece. Although no criminal charges were filed, the suit did say that if this very un-fabulous four "had been doing their jobs—honestly and faithfully—the Madoff Ponzi scheme might never have succeeded, or continued for so long.”
