In November 2010, a FINRA arbitration panel in Boca Raton, FL ordered Morgan Keegan to pay at least $2,138,805 in damages and prejudgment interest to Claimants. The award was $1,825,517 in capital losses and at least $313,288 in prejudgment interest. The panel found Morgan Keegan explicitly "liable for misrepresentations and omissions (common law fraud), breach of fiduciary duty, unsuitable investments, negligence, failure to supervise, breach of contract, and vicarious liability" related to Claimants' investments in the RMK Select High Income Fund (MKHIX), RMK Strategic Income Fund (RSF), and RMK Multi-Sector High Income Fund (RHY). Dr. McCann testified on behalf of the Claimants.
