Securities Brokerage Expert in SEC Rule 144 and 145
A securities brokerage expert was sought for a negligence case alleging reckless misrepresentation and unreasonable delay in action. Claimants attempted to sell stocks but were unable to sell due to restrictive legends intended to thwart insider trading. Defendants claimed the stock sales were prohibited due to SEC rules 144 and 145. Due to defendants' alleged reckless misrepresentation and unreasonable delay in action, plaintiffs were unable to trade the stock certificates until a time at which their value at market price had declined significantly.
