Five years later, and the $20 billion lost in financier Bernard Madoff's long-running scam is still seeing courtroom justice. On Tuesday, the selection began for a dozen jurors to sit for the fraud trial of five ex-employees of Madoff. Two hundred prospectives gathered in New York, and were told names like Steven Spielberg, Sandy Foufax, Kevin Bacon, and Zsa Zsa Gabor could be brought up at the trial. Madoff himself is currently serving a 150-year prison sentence.
