In an action brought by a receiver for a corporation through which a Ponzi scheme was run against various third-parties, denial of defendants' post-trial motion for judgment of law is vacated and remanded where, although the receiver sufficiently alleged an injury distinct to the corporation to get past the standing threshold, on the facts presented to the jury, neither key individual defendants can be liable to the plaintiff acting as the corporation's receiver.
