‘Liar’s Poker’ Trader Accused of Rape in NYC ‘Dungeon’

A Wall Street trader famous for his mortgage-securities losses has been sued by three women who claim he beat and raped them as part of a human-trafficking operation run out of a Manhattan penthouse, the New York Post reports. In court documents filed at a federal court in Brooklyn on Thursday, the three plaintiffs say Howard A. Rubin, 62, whose high-stakes dealing was featured in The Big Short and Liar’s Poker, maintained a veritable “dungeon” in which he used bondage gear and cattle prods on them, requiring “extensive medical attention.” Rubin is a portfolio manager for an investment fund founded by financier George Soros. The plaintiffs are seeking $27 million in the case. The Post reports Rubin declined to comment when contacted Thursday.
