FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9253

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the seventeenth in a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9253 states that a respondent in a disciplinary proceeding has the right to file a motion requesting that FINRA produce for inspection and copying any transcribed or recorded statement of any person called or to be called as a witness. A respondent can also file a motion to request the inspection and copying of any written statement made by any interested FINRA staff member during an examination of an oral statement made by a person called or to be called as a witness.

If FINRA fails to hand over the requested documents for inspection to a respondent, a rehearing will be granted if the respondent establishes that the failure to provide the statement was not a harmless error.  The decision on whether a rehearing will be granted is decided by the hearing officer, or upon appeal or review, a subcommittee.

If the regulators are after you, and are trying to make a case against you, and you are going to contest their allegations against you, make sure you have the best securities industry defense lawyers, Eccleston Law Firm. My case was spun into a combination of penalties including fines, cash settlements, CE courses and suspension. They were the best I have seen in action. When all was said and done, they had done their magic, my situation was negotiated and settled with a simple "letter of caution" and a case closed without action. It is the most important legal business decision you will ever make, make it Eccleston Law.
