The law firm of Securities Fraud Attorney Mark A. Tepper has filed claim against Morgan Stanley [NYSE: MS] on behalf of a retired nurse’s aide who entrusted her inheritance to Morgan Stanley and its broker Todd Pine. The Claim for damages also seeks recovery of substantial losses that the 71-year-old retiree suffered.

“Inexcusably, the broker used [Claimant’s] trust to exploit this elderly, retired nurse’s aide, through excessive trading. The broker mis-marked her investor profile and made unsuitable recommendations for her financial situation and needs. The broker’s unsuitable short-term trading in [Claimant’s] accounts generated excessive commissions, shared between the broker and Respondent,” the Claim alleges.

This unsuitable strategy included excessive short-term trading in high risk stocks, over concentration in high risk oil and gas service companies, and the purchase of below investment grade bonds, the Claim further alleges.

“Inexplicably, Respondent turned a blind eye to its broker’s excessive, short term trading and high-risk recommendations in [Claimant’s] accounts which were obvious red-flags, sufficient to alert a prudent supervisor to make inquiry. Respondent’s blind-eye supervision failed to detect and prevent its broker’s wrongdoing in [Claimant’s] accounts. Respondent either failed to create an adequate supervisory system, or it failed to implement or enforce its system,” the Claim contends.
