Crow et al v Morgan Keegan - $148,000 (MKIBX) Award
In September 2009, a FINRA arbitration panel in Birmingham, AL ordered Morgan Keegan to pay $148,000 in damages including expert witness fees. The panel also assessed $30,825 in forum fees to the Respondents. The award was made after a hearing wherein the Claimants alleged Respondents breached contractual and fiduciary duties, failed to suitably invest Claimants' accounts, and failed to supervise Claimants' accounts. The claims related to Claimants' investments in the RMK Select Intermediate Bond Fund (MKIBX). Dr. McCann testified on behalf of the Claimants.
