Crosby v. Lewis , 523 So.2d 1154 (1988)

Crosby v. Lewis


The Crosby's used several cashiers’ checks to invest in Lewis's pyramid scheme. The State ultimately shut it down and appointed a receiver to distribute the remaining funds to creditors, of which the Crosby’s were also. Lewis had some of the cashiers’ checks still in her possession, undeposited, at the time the receiver was appointed, and Crosby instructed the bank to stop payment on the checks. They intervened in the receivership proceeding to challenge the order by the court refusing to distribute proceeds to them until the cashiers’ checks were paid to the receiver.
