Hedge fund manager Marc Lasry says his firm, Avenue Capital, lost more than $200 million in a bad bet on now bankrupt sandwich shop chain Quiznos because the former owners deceived them about the health of the company, according to the New York Post.

Rick Schaden and his father Richard used misleading models when restructuring the company in early 2012 before it was bought by Avenue and Fortress Investment Group, the Post said in summarizing a bankruptcy court filing.
