It was a tale of two judges for Boston Life and Annuity Company Ltd., which is involved in litigation with 57 of its U. S.-based insureds who claim they are victims of an $11 million fraud allegedly masterminded by U. S. nationals Leo Ford and Denis Kleinfeld and U. K. national Rick May.

District Court for the Southern District of Florida compelling the appearance for deposition of, and production of documents by, Michael Rosenbaum, a former employee of The Kleinfeld Law Firm, of Miami, and they have just made a similar application concerning Jerome M. Hesch, who is a Miami-based attorney with Greenberg Traurig law firm.
