Part 7: Securities Fraud: When "good" Investments Disappear
The nest egg stories
Cases of investment and securities fraud come in many sizes. It is hard not to feel for middle aged and older individuals who have seen their life savings and pension investments shrivel or disappear while under the supposedly watchful eye of some third party.
Latest Lawsuit News & Legal Information
President (of Yale) Can’t Dodge DepositionNew Haven, CT
Peter Salovey, the president of Yale University, must submit to a deposition in a long-running class action ERISA lawsuit. Vellali v. Yale University
claims that the university, as a fiduciary of the Yale University Retirement Account Plan (the “Plan”), mismanaged Plan assets and investment options in a way that harmed workers trying to save for retirement. It occurs in the context of several similar university ERISA lawsuits. The results of these have been very mixed – some wins, some losses for plan participants, with no clear trend developing. Yale University also has a long history of labor troubles.

Sickening Stock Drop Prompts Boeing 737 ERISA Lawsuit Chicago, IL
On March 31, participants in the Boeing Voluntary Investment Plan (VIP Plan) filed a class action ERISA lawsuit in the Northern District of Illinois. The lawsuit
alleges that Boeing knew about problems with its 737 MAX series of airplanes and hid the bad news, all while encouraging plan participants to invest in company stock though the VIP Stock Fund. When the planes dove out of the sky, the stock price dropped, too. Although it hardly compares to the terrible and tragic loss of life, plan participants were also injured when their retirement savings vanished.
