Judah petroleum interests to be sold for paying back victims

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A federal judge ordered on Tuesday that more of the property seized from Benny Judah can go up for auction.

Judah is the former Lubbock businessman who is now in prison for a Ponzi Scheme involving 250 or so victims -- mostly from the Lubbock area.  They stood to lose a little less than 40 million dollars however; a court-appointed Receivership Trustee has been selling Judah's property to at least partially reimburse the victims.
