New York Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli last week sued Aldus Equity Partners LP and its principals for wrongful conduct. DiNapoli is seeking a rescission of the firm’s contract with the New York State Common Retirement Fund, reimbursement of more than $5 million in fees, and punitive damages.

DiNapoli alleges that the boutique investment firm committed acts of fraud, bribery, breach of contract and conspiracy as part of a pay-to-play kickback scheme allegedly orchestrated by Henry Morris and David Loglisci, who were senior staffers of former Comptroller Alan Hevesi.
