U.S. Attorney General Has Recused Himself From Madoff Case

U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey has recused himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into Madoff because his son, Marc, represents someone involved in the case, a department spokesman said today.

Further, Michael Mukasey is a 1959 graduate of the Ramaz School, a modern Orthodox Jewish school in New York that invested as much as $6 million in a fund that invested with Madoff, said Kenny Rochlin, Ramaz’s director of institutional advancement. Mukasey’s wife, Susan, was headmistress of Ramaz’s Lower School for children in primary grades, Rochlin said.
