Celebuzz.com - Hollywood Stars gossip - claims to have the exact details of how Brad Ruderman ended up in the high-stakes poker game with Tobey Maquire and others.
It appears that Celebuzz managed to come across a 206-page deposition taken of Ruderman in the Taft Community Correctional Facility in Kern County, California, and they want to tell the world the story of "Hollywood's high-roller card sharks for the first time, in Ruderman's words."
Remember Ruderman? He's the bad poker player that is also a con man and Ponzi scheme operator and he's in federal prison right now serving a 10-year sentence - it's for wire fraud, investment adviser fraud, and willful failure to file taxes - not because he's a bad poker player.
Ruderman used money collected from investors at Ruderman Capital Partners to front his gambling losses. The trustee in bankruptcy court for Ruderman's company filed a complaint against Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Leonardo DeCaprio, and others earlier this year.
