("K&T") (http://www.nasd-law.com) announced today that it has filed a lawsuit before The National Association of Securities Dealers ("NASD") n/k/a The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), Case No. 07-02225, against Brookstreet Securities Corporation ("Brookstreet"). The lawsuit, filed on behalf of two retirees in their late 70s, seeks damages of about $1,000,000. Specifically, the Statement of Claim alleges that Brookstreet, through its registered representative, Clifford Popper ("Popper"), purchased high risk, speculative Collateralized Mortgage Obligations ("CMOs") in the Claimants' retirement accounts. Many of these CMOs were purchased through the use of margin. Brookstreet and Popper represented to the Claimants that these CMOs were "safe investments," and that they were suitable for retired individuals. However, mortgage backed securities, including CMOs, can be one of the most complex, risky securities an investor can buy. As a result of Brookstreet and Popper's unsuitable investment advice, the Claimants' life savings has been decimated.
