Urban Child Institute Loses Claim Against Morgan Keegan

By Andy Meek

The Urban Child Institute has lost an arbitration case it filed against Morgan Keegan & Co. Inc., the Memphis brokerage firm that was sold to Raymond James Financial Inc. in 2012.

The nonprofit had sought more than $9.6 million after losing money in Morgan Keegan-related securities that lost most of their value and which the nonprofit claimed Morgan Keegan misrepresented, among other things. The arbitration claim was dismissed in its entirety.

One of the three members of the arbitration panel signed a dissent, signaling his objecting to the ruling – something not often seen in arbitration cases, which are frequently unanimous.

The investments were at the center of charges that state and federal regulators filed against Morgan Keegan a few years ago. Morgan Keegan agreed to pay $200 million to settle the regulatory charges.

As a result of the merger, Raymond James has said it intends to do away with the Morgan Keegan name this month.
