A federal judge has ordered former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli to forfeit almost $7.4 million because of his fraud convictions past year.
Martin Shkreli purchased the exclusive album for $2 million in 2015, but was convinced for multiple counts of fraud in 2017.
He also wanted to pay other creditors, including his lawyers, before forfeiting any money - a notion rejected Monday by U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto in Brooklyn, New York.
However, the judge stayed the execution of her order, and the seizure of the substitute assets pending the resolution of Shkreli's planned appeal of his conviction.
Matsumoto ordered Shkreli jailed in September after he issued a bounty on social media for a sample of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's hair.
Officials Say End of This Very Long Flu Season Is in Sight
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday. "We do know that the vaccine is worth getting", Schuchat said. The potential for error here can dramatically alter the effectiveness of the flu shot in a given season.
Vyera was formerly known as Turing Pharmaceuticals, which Shkreli founded and gained infamy for in 2015 after raising the price of its anti-parasite drug Daraprim by more than 5,000 percent.
This means he'll have to give up some of his prized possessions, including a painting by Pablo Picasso, a copy of the unreleased Lil' Wayne album "Tha Carter V" and the world's only pressing of the Wu-Tang Clan album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin".
At any rate, the US government believes it's still Shkreli's, and that it's valuable enough to include in the same list as a Picasso.
A jury found him guilty last August of unrelated securities fraud charges.
The defense is seeking a sentence of no more than 18 months behind bars.
