Mets Agree to Pay in Madoff Fraud

Personal property of Bernard and Ruth Madoff is seen during a press preview of the auction items seized in New York and Florida by the United States Marshals Service, in New York November 13, 2009. 

Owners of the New York Mets baseball team have agreed to pay $162 million to settle a lawsuit by the trustee seeking money for victims of Bernard Madoff's fraud.

The settlement was announced in Manhattan federal court by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff on Monday, just before a trial was scheduled to begin in the case.
