In the first charges to stem from a broad federal investigation into Maryland's tax-sale auctions, a veteran real estate investor has admitted conspiring to rig bids over several years at auctions in Baltimore and five Maryland counties. Steven L. Berman, 50, of New Freedom, Pa., will pay a $750,000 fine and face a possible prison term, federal prosecutors said yesterday. In pleading guilty to the single felony count, Berman agreed to cooperate with the investigation. The Justice Department's antitrust division in Washington has been examining alleged collusion and restraint of trade in the annual auctions for more than a year.

Taking over the collection of unpaid tax and municipal debt cases became a lucrative business for two Baltimore real estate investors who made at least $10 million, largely from homeowners who paid to keep from losing their properties, according to federal prosecutors. Baltimore County lawyer Harvey M. Nusbaum and his longtime investment partner Jack W. Stollof allegedly rigged the bidding for municipal liens and then used the court system to threaten homeowners with seizure of their properties unless they paid legal fees, interest and other charges, according to the government.

A Baltimore businessman and aggressive ground rent investor pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to illegally rigging bids at Maryland tax lien auctions. Jack W. Stollof, 74, faces up to 10 years in prison and a $1 million fine for violating the Sherman Antitrust Act. His co-defendant and one-time ground rent partner, Harvey M. Nusbaum, is scheduled to go to trial in March on the same charge. Stollof, who will be sentenced after the trial, is not expected to testify, unlike a third defendant who reached a plea deal with the government in 2008.
