Is Ruth Madoff now officially homeless? “The U.S. Marshals Service on Thursday took possession of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff's $7 million Manhattan penthouse in a move that forced his wife to move elsewhere,” according to the Associated Press. “U.S. Marshal Joseph Guccione said the marshals arrived at the property at noon with a court order permitting them to take custody of the apartment and to make anyone living there move out.” Ruth apparently complied with the order. "She will be leaving," Guccione said. "Restitution for the victims is the government's top priority."
