FINRA Arbitration and Litigation Fraud, Mismanagement, Unsuitability, Negligent Supervision and Selling Away Attorney Attorney, Russell L. Forkey, Esq.

December, 2010:

Periodically, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (FINRA) publically announces, on its website, enforcement actions that have either recently been settled by or commenced against broker/dealers and/or associated persons.

We review these settlements and filed actions each month and provide a brief description of those matters which we believe will be of interest to investors.

Please keep in mind that the complaints issued by FINRA represents FINRA’s initiation of a formal proceeding in which findings as to the allegations in the complaint have not been made, and does not represent a decision as to any of the allegations contained in the complaint. Because these complaints have not yet been adjudicated, you may wish to contact the respondents before drawing any conclusions regarding the allegations in the complaint.
