Judge Won't Compel Arbitration in Stanford Case

U.S. District Judge David Godbey of Dallas has ruled that the receiver he appointed to recover millions of dollars taken in R. Allen Stanford "massive Ponzi scheme" cannot be compelled into arbitration to collect funds the now-imprisoned Houston financier paid stockbrokers who worked for his companies.

To do otherwise, Godbey ruled in a July 30 order in the highly litigated Ralph S. Janvey v. James R. Alguire, "would frustrate a central purpose of federal equity receivership's."

Godbey has presided over litigation involving the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's civil receivership action over Stanford-related entities for more than five years. Stanford is currently serving a 110-year prison sentence after a Houston federal jury convicted him of fraud for running the Ponzi scheme. Stanford has appealed.

Early in the receivership action, Godbey appointed Ralph S. Janvey, a partner in Dallas' Krage & Janvey, to serve as receiver over the Stanford entities to trace any assets owned by the receivership estate. Janvey then sued numerous former employees of the Stanford entities to recover the funds, but more than 100 stockbrokers filed motions to compel arbitration in the case, pointing to agreements they signed with Stanford.
