By Jen Heger - RadarOnline.com Legal Editor
Molly Bloom, the woman at the center of the Hollywood poker scandal, has formally responded to a lawsuit filed against her and denies organizing the high stakes poker games that were held at luxury hotels, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The lawsuit was filed against Bloom in the United States Bankruptcy Court for $473,2000 by Howard Ehrenberg, a court appointed trustee who is attempting to recoup money from jilted investors in a Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Brad Ruderman.

An FBI investigation revealed that Ruderman, the CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, was the mastermind of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, and used the hedge fund to pay off his monster gambling debts. Ruderman is currently in jail in Texas until 2017.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported Tobey Maguire, 35, won more than $300,000 from Ruderman, and is also being sued by Ehrenberg. Bloom was also roughed-up after fleeing from Los Angeles to New York. Insiders connected to the game speculate that the mob may be responsible for her beating.
