SFCU successfully pursued case against Las Vegas CEO for bankruptcy fraud

For years, Southeast Financial Credit Union (SFCU) provided financing to customers for the purchase of test preparation materials sold by an Indiana corporation. After learning that the corporation was being investigated by several states attorneys general for consumer protection violations and had become insolvent, SFCU faced significant exposure for the acts and omissions of others.

SFCU retained Waller to design and execute a comprehensive litigation and public relations strategy. SFCU went on the offensive and filed suit in federal court against the Indiana corporation and its primary shareholders and officers. When the CEO and majority shareholder attempted to shirk his responsibility by declaring bankruptcy in Las Vegas, SFCU asserted bankruptcy fraud claims against him. Waller successfully settled the matter on behalf of SFCU, all while mitigating the credit union’s exposure to claims from attorneys general across the country.
