Fishman Haygood Phelps Walmsley Willis & Swanson, LLP to Join the Legal Team Representing Stanford Investors

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Butzel Long, PC (“Butzel Long”), and Fishman Haygood Phelps Walmsley Willis & Swanson, LLP (“Fishman Haygood”),  today announced that Fishman Haygood will join the team of lawyers representing former investors and depositors in Stanford International Bank, Ltd. (“SIBL”). A class action lawsuit that Butzel Long lead attorney Peter Morgenstern filed on behalf of investors who purchased SIBL Certificates of Deposit (“CDs”) is pending in the United State District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

That lawsuit names as defendants Trustmark National Bank, HSBC Bank, The Toronto-Dominion Bank, Private Banking (Suisse) S.A., and Bank of Houston. The lawsuit seeks damages on behalf of SIBL CD investors for the roles that they allege the named defendants played in the CD scheme masterminded by R. Allen Stanford, which scheme the court determined to have been a fraud in Janvey v. Alguire, USDC N.D. Tex. Case No. 3:09-CV-0724-N Doc. No. 456. A recent Supreme Court decision upheld the investors’ right to bring certain claims under state law, freeing the case to go forward. With this recent development, Fishman Haygood lead attorney James R. Swanson has agreed to join the legal team representing investors in their effort to maximize the recovery on their legal claims against the defendant banks.

Mr. Swanson is active in major litigation pending in federal and state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded investors. Mr. Morgenstern has been heavily involved with a number of cases filed on behalf of SIBL CD investors. Mr. Swanson and Mr. Morgenstern intend to combine their expertise and work closely on behalf of the SIBL CD investors.
