NEW YORK, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Pitching great Sandy Koufax and Bernard Madoff's defense lawyer were on a list of potential victims released Thursday in bankruptcy court in New York.

The list was in tiny type and alphabetized by first name, The New York Times reported. Among the 13,567 customer accounts listed were those of U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., actor John Malkovich and the heirs of singer John Denver and Hollywood producer Irving Thalberg.

Ira Sorkin, Madoff's lawyer, is listed under his own account and accounts belonging to his now-dead parents.

The list includes names gathered from Madoff's records since his arrest in December and some people who called prosecutors to say they might have been victims. Many of those listed were investing other people's money with Madoff.

Madoff's assets are listed at $950 million. Prosecutors say his alleged Ponzi scheme, believed to be the largest ever perpetrated, may have resulted in losses to investors totaling $50 billion.
