Mercer v Morgan Keegan - $444,978 (RSF, RMA, RHY) Award
In November 2010, a FINRA arbitration panel in Orlando, FL ordered Morgan Keegan to pay $444,978 in damages plus attorneys' fees and costs to be determined. The award was made after a hearing wherein the Claimants alleged Respondents breached contractual and fiduciary duties and committed securities fraud. The panel found Morgan Keegan liable for "breach of fiduciary duty; unsuitability and failure to supervise." The claims related to Claimants' investments in the 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.
