The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages.

A second investor complaint, filed in 2007, alleged unsuitable investment recommendations, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, negligent hiring, and breach of fiduciary duty in relation to investments in collerateralized mortgage obligations while Mr. Brooks was a control person at Brookstreet Securities Group. The complaint evolved into an arbitration proceeding before a FINRA panel, which issued an award to the customer of $523,300.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Scott Brooks holds 22 years of securities industry experience.
