Judge Pauses ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Corruption Case

Judge Pauses ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Corruption Case
A federal judge on Wednesday agreed to pause the asset forfeiture case against Red Granite Pictures, as investigators continue to pursue criminal charges in the sprawling 1Mdb scandal.

Red Granite is accused of using funds embezzled from the Malaysian development fund to finance “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Daddy’s Home,” and “Dumb and Dumber To.” The government is seeking to seize revenues from each of those films. In a court filing objecting to the delay, Red Granite’s attorneys noted that the company “has a strong interest in clearing its name promptly.”

Judge Dale S. Fischer was set to hear arguments on the issue next Monday. Instead, she granted the government’s request for a delay without argument in a written ruling.
