Fifth Circuit Rules Receiver Not Required to Arbitrate $215 million Fraudulent Transfer Claim Against Former Stanford Financial Advisers

On March 16, 2017, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued its mandate in Janvey v. Alguire, Case No. 14-10857, bringing to a close a long-running dispute between the Stanford Receiver and more than 300 former Stanford financial advisers who were trying to compel the Receiver to assert his claims against them in arbitration.

 The financial advisers had asserted that the Receiver was bound by Allen Stanford’s agreements with them to arbitrate any disputes arising out of their employment with Stanford. In a per curiam opinion, a panel of the Fifth Circuit unanimously held that the Receiver was not bound to those arbitration agreements because he was bringing his claims on behalf of Stanford International Bank alone, a receivership entity that never had any arbitration agreement with the former Stanford brokers.

 The Receiver’s lawsuit seeks to recover more than $215 million in fraudulent transfers made to the former Stanford brokers, all of whom profited from the sale of fraudulent Stanford International Bank CDs. In a concurring opinion, Judge Higginbotham colorfully summarized the Receiver’s lawsuit thusly:.............

 The investors, the bulk of whom are Mexican citizens, claim Chadbourne as well as Proskauer Rose LLP and the firms’ attorneys aided the Ponzi scheme, in which Stanford's foreign bank sold investors sham securities called certificates...

Billionaire Slams Stanford Receiver’s $88M Clawback Bid

A Colorado billionaire who won a jury trial in an $88 million clawback suit aimed at recovering money invested in R. Allen Stanford’s $7 billion Ponzi scheme told a Texas federal judge on Wednesday the receiver for the fraud continues to use arguments rejected previously to force a judgment against him.

Billionaire Gary Magness said Ralph S. Janvey continues to claim it would not have been futile to investigate the source of $88.2 million in loans received from a bank affiliated with the scheme, despite multiple...

Romero, the former ambassador to Ecuador, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection after a Texas federal judge ordered him to pay $1.2 million in fraudulent transfers from his time as an adviser to Stanford. Stanford receiver Ralph Janvey was denied a...

Stanford Ponzi Receiver Doubles Down On Clawback Claim

The receiver for R. Allen Stanford’s $7 billion Ponzi scheme on Wednesday urged a Texas federal judge to force an investor to repay $88.2 million, saying that a jury’s recent finding blocking the attempted clawback actually proved the investor knew about the plot.

 A Texas federal jury found earlier in January that billionaire Gary Magness shouldn’t have to return $88.2 million in loans from a bank affiliated with Stanford’s $7 billion scheme, saying that although investment vehicles owned by Magness had notice of the Stanford empire's..

Ninth-Justice Argument Rejected In Stanford Ponzi Case

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to reconsider its decision not to hear an appeal from convicted Ponzi schemer Robert Allen Stanford, who's serving a 110-year sentence for running a $7 billion fraud, rejecting Stanford's request it take up the case after President Donald Trump appoints a ninth justice. Stanford had filed a petition for rehearing on Dec. 23, seeking another shot at appealing his prison sentence, arguing a Trump-appointed justice serving on a fully staffed nine-member bench could make all the difference in his...
