Investments in Medical Capital Holdings have resulted in millions of dollars in losses for investors across the country and, in turn, ignited a rash of lawsuits and arbitration claims. The focus of investors’ complaints is on the broker/dealers that sold the investments – known as Medical Capital Notes – and the information they allegedly kept hidden.
Securities America is one of the broker/dealers facing legal action in connection to Medical Capital Holdings. Massachusetts regulators sued the Omaha-based company on Jan. 26, claiming it misled investors about the risks involved in the Medical Capital Notes and the financial health of the issuer, Medical Capital Holdings. According to the complaint, 400 Securities America advisers allegedly sold $700 million of the private placements, half of which are now in default.
One of the advisers is William Glubiak, who was named in a December 2009 complaint involving Medical Capital Holdings. The suit alleges causes of action as unsuitability, misrepresentation and omission of material facts, according to records with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
Paula Dorion-Gray is another adviser for Securities America. She also is facing a lawsuit over private placement deals gone wrong. As reported Feb. 3 by Investment News, Dorion-Gray was named in a $254,000 complaint in November that accuses her of recommending alternative investments in Medical Capital and another private placement, Provident Royalties LLC.
Medical Capital Holdings and Provident Royalties were both charged with fraud this past summer by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
