Fornell v. Morgan Keegan Firm obtained an Award against Morgan Keegan for $195,000 plus costs of $20,000 and attorney’s fees for an investor who had out of pocket losses of $105,000 in the RMK funds. The Award of compensatory damages of $195,000 was for “well managed damages” which are damages intended to put the investor in the position he would be in if invested in appropriate investments. The arbitration panel also made a finding that the broker was a co-trustee of the pension plan and as such awarded attorney’s fees allowed under the ERISA statute.
