SEC Charges Morgan Stanley with Misleading Investors in Subprime RMBS Offerings

Posted on August 18th, 2014 at 9:00 AM

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law Offices:

The SEC charged three Morgan Stanley entities with misleading investors in a pair of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) that the firms underwrote, sponsored, and issued. Morgan Stanley agreed to settle the charges by paying $275 million to be returned to harmed investors.

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, Morgan Stanley ABS Capital I Inc., and Morgan Stanley Mortgage Capital Holdings LLC,were collateralized by mortgage loans, Morgan Stanley ABS Capital I Inc. Trust 2007-NC4 and Morgan Capital I Inc. Trust 2007-HE7, with an aggregate principal value balance of more than $2.5 billion. 

The SEC investigation found that Morgan Stanley misrepresented the current or historical delinquency status of those mortgage loans.

I learned two important things working with Eccleston Law. First, I made a friend and ally with Jim and Steph for life. Secondly, and this is a crucial life lesson - if you need counsel, then seek out the very best. Jim was referred to me by a most trusted source. I've never had to hire an attorney for anything. Now, I know the value of hiring an important partner. Meticulous, thorough and detailed in preparation is the best way to describe Jim. Brilliant too, I might add. Bottom line, I would highly highly recommend Jim and Stephany for your legal needs. One of the best life decisions I've ever made.
