MADISON, Wis. — A complaint alleging corruption in the Milwaukee County court system is now in the hands of Wisconsin’s attorney general.

A spokesman for Attorney General Brad Schimel tells Wisconsin Watchdog that the state Department of Justice recently received a referral from District Attorney John Chisholm of the complaint, filed by Milwaukee entrepreneur Emmanuel Mamalakis.

“We are reviewing,” said Johnny Koremenos, the DOJ communications director.

Mamalakis, a litigant in multiple lawsuits involving his former company,  SXP Analytics LLC, accuses Milwaukee-based O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman DeJong & Laing SC, the court-appointed receiver for SXP’s assets, of conspiring with Quantlab Technologies Ltd. of Houston in an egregious breach of fiduciary duty.

Mamalakis alleges that Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Van Grunsven turned a blind eye to the law firm’s alleged double-dealing because of his ties to a cadre of politically connected local attorneys.

According to court documents, Mamalakis alleges that O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman DeJong & Laing SC and Seth Dizzard, the firm’s attorney who served as receiver, combined with an SXP minority partner “for the purpose of willfully and maliciously injuring Mamalakis and his reputation, trade, business profession in exchange for receipt of financial benefit.”
