East Tennessee Neurology, PC v Morgan Keegan - $484,357 (RMH, RSF, RMA, RHY) Award
In August 2010, a FINRA arbitration panel in Birmingham, AL ordered Morgan Keegan to pay $484,357 in damages including $115,689 in attorneys' fees and $52,413 in costs. 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 panel found Morgan Keegan "liable for unsuitability, negligence and failure to supervise." The claims related to Claimants' investments in the RMK High Income Fund (RMH), RMK Strategic Income Fund (RSF), RMK Advantage Income Fund (RMA) and RMK Multi-Sector High Income Fund (RHY). Dr. McCann testified on behalf of the Claimants.
