SAC Capital Advisors founder Steven Cohen has asked a judge to dismiss his ex-wife’s racketeering lawsuit against him, calling it little more than a shakedown attempt.
Patricia Cohen’s lawsuit “is plainly designed to extort monies from Mr. Cohen,” his lawyers wrote in a dismissal motion, filed Friday in Manhattan federal court.
Patricia Cohen claims that her ex-husband hid marital assets from both her and the authorities during their 1991 divorce. She also alleges that he confessed to insider-trading, and is demanding a “substantial, if not controlling” stake in SAC Capital, which she says was set up in part with money she made on real-estate investments.
Even if Patricia Cohen’s claims had any merit, they do not constitute racketeering, Steven Cohen’s lawyers say. And even if they did, the statute of limitations has lapsed.
