February 2013 Customer Dispute
- Status: Settled
- Allegations: This action arises from a short-term loan made by Pratt Foreclosures, LLC to SSJ Development, LLC in the amount of $820,000 on November 28, 2008. The loan was secured by a first lien security interest in the securities trading accounts of SSJ, Jemal and his family which were managed by Southwest Securities through Leighton Stallones. Respondents claim that the securities were confirmed by Southwest Securities and Mr. Stallones and that assets were frozen in the Jemal accounts. SSJ defaulted on repayment of the loan in March 2010 and demanded payment from Southwest and Stallones but was told that the securities in the account were not enough to cover the obligation. Plaintiff seeks money judgment against SSJ Development and Leighton Stallones based on its failure to repay the loan. Plaintiff asserts causes of action for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty based on false statements with regard to the Jemal accounts.

Plaintiffs allege fraud, civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting, aiding and abetting violation of Texas Securities Act, negligent and misrepresentation.
