The pending complaint alleges damages of $75,000.
An earlier complaint listed on Mr. Galy’s BrokerCheck report, filed in 2002, similarly alleged that he sold unsuitable investments in high-yield junk bonds and did not make the client aware of the risks of margin trading. In 2004 the complaint reached a settlement of $37,000.
