FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9261

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the eighteenth in a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9261 discusses the submission of documentary evidence and witness lists before a hearing by all parties involved in a disciplinary proceeding.

The rule states that no later than ten days before the hearing each party must submit to all other parties and to the hearing officer copies of documentary evidence and the names of the witnesses each party intends to present at the hearing. The parties may also agree to an earlier deadline to submit copies of documents and the names of witnesses before the hearing.

The documents submitted by the parties prior to the hearing will not become part of the record unless the hearing officer orders some or all of the evidence to be included.

Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for us. When we realized this was a very bad investment - we did not know where to turn for help. Then we received your name. When we called you - you were so kind to us and then agreed to help us. For this we are so very grateful. The world would be a much nicer place if there were more people like the two of you in it. We will always remember all the help and kindness you have shown us. Thank you so very very much for everything.
