Biden’s Son In Fund Suit

New York Post – Hedge fund executive Hunter Biden has had anything but a quiet introduction to his career in finance.

The 38-year-old son of Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden is caught up in several lawsuits regarding the acquisition and operation of Paradigm Companies, an investment firm that operates a fund of funds – a hedge fund that invests in other hedge funds.

Biden also appears to be feuding with partner James Park, the son-in-law of the Rev. Sun Myoung Moon, Court papers show.

Biden, also a Washington lobbyist, took control of Paradigm in August 2006 and was, for a brief period, its president – getting paid $1.2 million a year despite no experience in the sector, according to charges in one of the suits.

Months later, Anthony Lotito, a consultant, sued Biden, James Biden, his uncle, and Paradigm for allegedly cheating Lotito out of fees related to the purchase. Biden has denied the charges and the suit is awaiting trial.
