July 21, 2014: SIPC UPDATE

A federal appeals court in the Stanford Ponzi scheme case has affirmed the lower court ruling rejecting the SEC’s efforts to have the Securities Investor Protection Corp. (SIPC) compensate victims.  If the Court had adopted the SEC’s position, it might have resulted in SIPC compensation for McGinn Smith victims.  A copy of the decision can be viewed by clicking here.

The appeals court read the statute as not requiring SIPC coverage when the victims are not “customers” of the brokerage but rather are customers of a related entity.  The McGinn Smith facts are similar.  Consequently, there is likely no SIPC compensation for McGinn Smith victims based on the existing law.

For further background on this issue, see the following updates below:  November 19, 2013, October 17, 2013, September 19, 2011 at Announcement 14, May 23, 2012 at Announcement 24, and September 25, 2012 at Announcement 27.

July 9, 2014: CURRENT UPDATES

A. SEC Lawsuit vs. McGinn, Smith & Co., Inc., et al. - On July 8, 2014, the SEC filed its motion with the Court seeking summary judgment against David L. Smith, Timothy M. McGinn, Lynn A. Smith, Geoffrey R. Smith, Lauren Smith and Nancy McGinn based on the allegations in the SEC lawsuit commenced on April 20, 2010. The SEC’s Memorandum of Law which explains the SEC’s lengthy submissions to the Court is at Docket No. 708 below.

This development is important to investors because a decision in the SEC’s favor would result in approximately $2,328,323 as to Lynn Smith and $2,706,829 as to the Smith Trust which the Receiver has collected from various sources including Lynn Smith and Smith Trust investments and sales of the Vero Beach and Sacandaga Lake properties becoming available for distribution to investors and creditors.

The defendants (Lynn Smith (Docket No. 696), Geoffrey Smith, Lauren Smith, and the Smith Trust (Docket No. 704) have filed their own summary judgment motions seeking dismissal of the SEC’s claims against them.

The parties have the right to file reply pleadings. A decision is not likely before Fall 2014 at the earliest.

B. IRS and Investor Distributions - This updates the January 6, 2014, February 3, 2014 and March 20, 2014 Updates in the next information box concerning the IRS and the Department of Justice and a Plan of Distribution.

A conference was held with the Court on July 2, 2014. The IRS asked for more time to review the tax returns and gave the Receiver a list of questions to answer. The Court set August 7, 2014 for a further status conference.  Until the IRS completes its review and provides satisfactory distribution clearance to the Receiver, no investor distributions can be made.

C. Amounts on Hand for Distribution - As of June 27, 2014, the following amounts are in the Receiver’s accounts:

General Funds $ 15,847,500
Lynn Smith $ 2,328,323
Smith Trust $ 2,706,829
TOTAL $ 20,882,652

D. Sacandaga Lake Property Sale - A closing of the sale occurred on May 16, 2014.  See Docket No. 693 below.  Net proceeds of $546,204.16 have been deposited into a Receivership account pending further Court Order.


January 6, 2014: NOTICE TO ALL INVESTORS AND CREDITORS REGARDING PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION - The filing of a Plan of Distribution has been delayed because the Receiver cannot determine if any tax liability remains.  The Internal Revenue Service no longer issues “Closing Memoranda” to Receivers which was one way that Receivers would know they could distribute recovered monies to defrauded investors without risk of personal liability to the Receiver for non-payment of taxes.

The Receiver independently and with the cooperation of the SEC attempted to address this issue with the IRS and the Department of Justice without success.  Accordingly, the Receiver filed a Motion at Docket No. 658 below in an attempt to establish a process to compel Governmental Units to file claims or alternatively establish the priority of victim payments over any IRS claims in accordance with IRS policy.  The Court has set a conference with the Receiver and Governmental Units for January 22, 2014 to address the Motion.

The Receiver currently has on hand $18,607,827 as of January 3, 2013, which consists of $15,021,126 recovered by the Receiver plus $3,586,650 claimed by the Smith interests as still belonging to them but which has been frozen by the Court and is under the Receiver’s control.  As to the $3,586,650, the SEC’s trial to determine ownership should begin sometime this year.  The Receiver expects additional recoveries in the range of $4 million to $7 million in 2014.  Thus, the recovery pool could reach $22 million to $26 million.  Total investor claims are expected to be in the $100 million to $120 million range.

The Receiver will file a Plan of Distribution for Court approval prior to the resolution of the IRS and Governmental Unit claims making any distribution to investors subject to resolution of the tax issues.

UPDATE: February 3, 2014: The Court held the scheduled conference with the attorneys involved. The Department of Justice, Tax Division, lawyers requested time to ascertain if a solution could be achieved. The Court set a further conference for early March 2014. As of January 31, 2014, the Department of Justice reported to the Receiver that they were still pursuing a potential solution.

UPDATE: March 20, 2014: On February 16, 2014, the Department of Justice requested multiple copies in a designated format of all two hundred plus federal tax returns filed previously with the IRS by the Receiver. The returns were organized in the requested manner and copied onto CD’s by the Receiver’s tax accountants and delivered to the Department of Justice on February 28, 2014.

The Department of Justice informed the Receiver and the Court at a court conference on March 6, 2014 that the IRS would review the returns and estimated it would take 90 days to do so. The Court scheduled another conference for July 2, 2014.

Further updates will be posted as warranted.


January 6, 2014UPDATE ON SMITH SACANDAGA LAKE PROPERTY - Following decisions by the United States Court of Appeals and the District Court (Docket No. 592), the Receiver filed a Report in response to the Court’s five requested topics (Docket No. 604).  Based on that Report, the Court authorized the Receiver to proceed with the sale of the Smith’s Sacandaga Lake Property (Docket No. 647).  The Receiver has initiated the sale process.

Update: February 18, 2014: The Smith Sacandaga Lake Property has been listed for sale.  An offer has been received and will be the basis on which higher and better offers will be solicited.  All competing offers are to be received along with a deposit by March 7, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  If a higher and better offer is received, the Receiver will conduct an auction on March 12, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.  The procedures are set forth in the attached Notice which can be viewed by clicking here.

UPDATE: March 20, 2014: The Receiver has accepted an offer for the sale of the Smith Sacandaga Lake Property. The offer is subject to a mortgage contingency on one of the three parcels.

November 19, 2013: SIPC LEGISLATION - Senator Charles Schumer has introduced a bill which could aid McGinn Smith fraud victims by easing the requirements for SIPC coverage if the bill were enacted into law. A copy of a news article reporting on this development can be viewed by clicking here.

October 17, 2013 - SIPC UPDATE - On October 15, 2013, the appeal by the SEC of the Court decision in the Stanford fraud case denying the SEC’s request to compel SIPC coverage was argued in the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.  As described in Item 27 below, the primary issues continue to be whether the defrauded Stanford investors were “customers” of a SIPC member in order to be eligible for SIPC coverage and whether SIPC had a duty to protect the defrauded investors in the Stanford case.  The Court will make a decision at a later date.

September 24, 2013:  SEC CHARGES TEN MCGINN SMITH BROKERS - The SEC yesterday announced charges against 10 former McGinn Smith brokers for ignoring red flags that should have led them to conduct more due diligence into the securities they were recommending to their customers.  A copy of the SEC’s press release summarizing the charges can be read by clicking here.  A copy of the SEC’s public order detailing the charges can be read by clicking here.

September 20, 2013VERIFIER CAPITAL HOLDINGS LLC REDEMPTION MOTION AND NOTICE OF AUCTION - A motion has been filed which will result in a $4 million payment to the estate for the benefit of investors.  McGinn Smith entities made investments described in the Motion (Docket No. 590) in Verifier.  Verifier has agreed to repurchase the securities subject to higher and better offers and court approval.  An auction is scheduled for September 30, 2013 at 9:00 a.m., as described in the Notice (Docket No. 597).  The approval hearing is on October 2, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.  Any party interested in making a competing offer and bidding should contact the Receiver.

Equity Holders should carefully read and follow the Equity Claims Notice for the Court approved procedure.

CLAIMS WEBSITE: The Equity Claims Website containing the Equity Schedules can be accessed by clicking here using the confidential password in the Equity Claims Site Access Notice. The Equity Claims Website is for the confidential use of Equity Holders only.

BAR DATE FOR CLAIMS: The bar date or last day to file pre-Receivership Equity Claims is December 17, 2012 if you have an equity claim against any of the entities listed on the Schedule of Receivership Entities attached to the Equity Claims Notice (collectively, “MS Entities”).

WHO DOES NOT NEED TO FILE A CLAIM: If an Equity Holder agrees with the address, the description for their Equity Claim(s), the amount(s) as listed on the Equity Schedules on the Equity  Claims Website, and the claim(s) is/are not listed as disputed, contingent or unliquidated, the Equity Holder does not need to take any further actions. The claims in that event will be treated in the amount set forth on the Equity Schedules, subject to the right of the Receiver to object to the Claim at a later date, amend the amount of the Claim, or seek to avoid any Claim or payment, but only after giving notice by first class mail of such an intention with an opportunity to object to any such Equity Holder.

WHO MUST FILE A CLAIM: Equity Holders are required to timely file a written claim in the manner described in the Equity Claims Notice using the Equity Claim Form if:

  1. the Equity Holder does not receive an Equity Claims Site Access Notice and, therefore, the claim of the Equity Holder is not scheduled by the Receiver or the address of the Equity Holder is not current;
  2. the claim of the Equity Holder is listed on the Equity Schedules on the Equity Claims Website as contingent, disputed, or unliquidated; or
  3. the Equity Holder objects to the claim amount or description as listed on the Equity Schedules on the Equity Claims Website.

    1. April 21, 2010: The Receiver is undertaking a review of the assets and liabilities of the Receiver Entities at this time. The Receiver expects to communicate with interested parties by an initial letter communication sometime in the next several weeks once more is known. In the interim, interested parties can review this website from time to time for possible updates.

    2. June 4, 2010: RECEIVER’S REPORT - The First Report of the Receiver was filed with the Court (Docket No. 49 below).

    3. August 13, 2010: The Receiver has sent a letter to all known investors on August 13, 2010. The letter is also available by clicking here.

    4. November 18, 2010: COURT HEARINGS ON SMITH TRUST (DOCKET NOS. 103 AND 104) AND SEC MOTION FOR CONTEMPT (DOCKET NO. 168) - The Court held hearings on November 16 and 17, 2010 regarding the SEC’s Motion for reconsideration of the freezing of the Smith Trust. The Smith Trust hearing involved live witness testimony. The Court also heard arguments on the SEC’s Motion to hold Messrs. Smith and McGinn in contempt. The Court will announce its decisions at a later date. When the Court issues its decisions, they will be posted on this website.

    5. November 22, 2010: The Court has granted the SEC’s motion, reimposed the freeze on the Smith Trust, and granted the SEC the right to move for sanctions against the Trust, Lynn Smith, the former and current Trustees of the Trust, and certain of their professionals. Please see the Court’s decision at Docket No. 194 below.

    6. December 22, 2010 (Updated as of November 8, 2012): 74 STATE STREET HOSPITALITY, LLC (DOCKET NO. 234) - Third Albany Income Notes, LLC holds a subordinate mortgage lien on real property in Albany, New York commonly known as 74-76 State Street. The first mortgagee (CIT) commenced a mortgage foreclosure action which, if successful, would have had the effect of wiping out the subordinate TAIN mortgage. The Receiver has settled with Court approval CIT’s motion to lift the stay as to the TAIN mortgage position for $50,000 without waiving any of his other rights including those as a holder of equity interests in the owner of the property as more fully described in Docket Nos. 202 and 234.

      On November 5, 2012, a foreclosure auction was held following multiple prior adjournments. Ittleson Trust (as successor to CIT) as mortgagee with a claim exceeding $11 million bid in its mortgage for $5 million at the public foreclosure auction. Ittleson was the only bidder as expected. Efforts to find a buyer for the hotel property prior to the foreclosure sale were unsuccessful. The foreclosure has the effect of extinguishing the subordinate lien held by TAIN. Consequently, and as expected, the $50,000 paid to the Receiver in 2010 is the only consideration the estate is likely to receive from the real property.

      74 State Street Hospitality, LLC (UDATE: February 7, 2014) - 74 STATE STREET HOTEL PROPERTY SOLD - It has been reported in the Albany Times Union that the 74 State Street Hotel and underlying property have finally been sold to a new owner following the foreclosure of the property by the senior lender, CIT, more than a year ago after a very long foreclosure process. The reported sale price was $3.8 million. More than $11 million was originally borrowed or invested from other sources. The McGinn Smith estates held a subordinate interest which was foreclosed by the senior lender, CIT, but the Receiver had been paid $50,000 as part of the foreclosure process, which was placed in a Receiver account for eventual distribution to investors. If the Receiver had not negotiated that payment, the McGinn Smith estates would not have received anything in connection with the property. Two articles about this event can be viewed by clicking here.

    7. December 27, 2010: MESSAGE TO McGINN SMITH INVESTORS HOLDING McGINN SMITH INVESTMENTS IN IRA’S - Many investors have inquired as to what value to use for McGinn Smith investments held in their IRA’s. At this time, because of the uncertainty of the ultimate value of the underlying assets comprising the investments, the Receiver cannot value the investments. It presently appears to the Receiver that the value of the investments in general will likely be materially less than fifty percent of the original investment value and, in most cases, likely less than that. Individual investors should consider applying a rule of reason taking into account the facts and circumstances of this case. Valuations will not be possible until sometime in the last half of 2011 when assets have been monetized or collected.

      UPDATE:  JANUARY 24, 2013The Receiver has received inquiries from investors who placed their McGinn Smith investments into IRA’s.  In an effort to provide more public dissemination of the information the Receiver has shared with those investors who have made inquiries, the Receiver is posting this message.  This message is not intended, however, to constitute tax advice to any investor or any other person.  Rather, it is to provide a common sense answer to the current situation and expectations of the Receiver.  The following is based on the assumption that SIPC coverage will not be available for reasons discussed elsewhere on the Receiver’s website, the fact that the criminal trial is still underway, and the SEC’s civil case has not yet been brought to trial and will not go to trial until after the conclusion of the criminal case.

      It presently appears to the Receiver that the value of investments, in general, will likely be materially less than 40% of the original investment value and, in most cases, likely less than that.  Final valuations will not be possible until after the claims objection process is complete, the criminal and civil trials are concluded, and available assets and expenses are tallied. 

    8. February 1, 2011 (updated as of March 7, 2011, March 26, and May 7, 2012): VERO BEACH PROPERTY HAS BEEN SOLD - The District Court has granted the SEC’s Motion to appoint the Receiver to sell the Vero Beach property. See Docket No. 263 below. The Receiver has started the process to interview real estate brokers and will commence a sales process once an appropriate realtor is selected and engaged on appropriate terms. As of February 17, 2011, the Receiver has retained Norris and Company as the Real Estate broker for the sale of the Vero Beach property. The property should be listed in the Multiple Listing system the week of February 21, with photos of the property having been taken on February 18, 2011. The District Court has denied Lynn Smith’s motion for a stay of the sale order. (See Docket No. 285 below.) The property is listed for sale at $1.65 million, furniture available. Lynn Smith has appealed the Order permitting the sale of the Vero Beach property to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In response to Lynn Smith’s motion to stay the sale pending a decision by the Court of Appeals, the Court has allowed the property to continue to be listed and shown and for the Receiver to receive offers on the property, but the acceptance of any offer is stayed until a Motion Panel of the Circuit Court renders a decision on the motion for stay pending appeal. The Second Circuit subsequently agreed with Judge Homer that the Receiver should sell the property.

      The closing took place on April 23, 2012 for $1,120,000 with the estate retaining $102,310.94 after payment of past-due taxes, assessments and mortgage. The Receiver obtained a material concession from the mortgagee to produce equity for the estate.

    9. July 20, 2011: DECISION ON MOTION BY SEC FOR SANCTIONS - The District Court has awarded sanctions against Defendants Lynn A. Smith, Jill A. Dunn and David Wojeski, relating to issues surrounding the David L. and Lynn A. Smith Irrevocable Trust. Pursuant to the Decision, Lynn Smith is to disgorge $944,848 to the Receiver in addition to paying the SEC $51,232 for attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the SEC. If Lynn Smith fails to disgorge the full amount by September 1, 2011, the Receiver is granted authority to take certain actions to recover the unpaid amounts from the Great Sacandaga Lake property, including its sale or rental. Ms. Dunn is to disgorge $5,355 to the Receiver, and Mr. Wojeski is to disgorge to the Receiver $13,834. Sanctions which were sought against Thomas Urbelis and a request to pursue discovery against James D. Featherstonhaugh were denied. A copy of the Decision is at Docket No. 342 below.

    10. July 27, 2011: MESSAGE TO UPSTATE IMAGING ASSOCIATES AND PORTFOLIO PARTNERS INVESTORS - The County of Albany seeks to foreclosure for unpaid taxes a certain real property owned by Upstate Imaging Associates. The circumstances of the property are described in Docket No. 343 below. Additionally, the Receiver has mailed an explanatory letter to each of the relevant investors of whom he is aware.

    11. August 8, 2011: APPELLATE COURT UPHOLDS ASSET FREEZE OF SMITH TRUST AND SMITH STOCK ACCOUNT AND SALE OF SMITH FLORIDA PROPERTY - The Second Circuit Court of Appeals issued two opinions on August 8, 2011 denying appeals by Lynn Smith, Geoffrey Smith and Lauren Smith and sustaining the District Court’s decision to freeze the Smith Trust and the Smith’s stock account (See Docket Nos. 194 and 86 below). The Appeals Court also upheld the District Court’s Order permitting the sale of the Smith’s Florida home in a sale to be conducted by the Receiver (See Docket No. 263 below). Copies of both decisions are available by clicking here.

    12. August 17, 2011 (Updated as of September 7, 2011): MESSAGE TO MCGINN SMITH FIRSTLINE FUNDING, LLC INVESTORS. - The Receiver has filed a motion to approve a settlement with Security Systems, Inc. (“SSI”) regarding the McGinn Smith Firstline Funding, LLC (“MS Firstline”) transaction. The Motion will be heard by the Court on August 30, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. The settlement involves the resolution of a $1.1 million pre-Receivership loan to MS Firstline by SSI by payment of a substantially reduced amount to the lender, forgiveness of interest, and cancellation of an attrition guaranty. The repayment of an unrelated loan made by the Receivership estates to an entity known as Integrated Excellence Funding, LLC will also be repaid to the Receivership estates in the approximate amount of $606,636. Complete details of the Motion and the reasons supporting it are contained in Docket No. 365 below. Also see attached letter by clicking here. On August 30, 2011, the Court approved the settlement with Security Systems, Inc. per Docket No.372 below, and Security Systems, Inc. previously acquired the Integrated Excellence alarm contracts collateral for a total of $642,944.91, which proceeds were placed into a Receiver’s account.

    13. September 16, 2011: MESSAGE TO MCGINN SMITH INVESTORS REGARDING ASSETS COLLECTED. - As of September 9, 2011, the Receiver’s accounts have a balance of $8,094,973.22. This amount represents proceeds from operating businesses and other assets. Additional monies will be collected from the sale of at least four operating businesses prior to year-end based upon current facts. At the initiation of the Receivership, the Receiver’s account balances totaled only $485,491.63. A more specific Report will be filed with the Court and posted on this website shortly. Subject to Court approval and SEC consent, it is possible that at least a preliminary distribution could be made sometime in the first six months of 2012.

    14. September 19, 2011 (Updated as of September 30, 2011 and May 23, 2012): MESSAGE REGARDING SIPC COVERAGE. - In order to clarify whether SIPC (Securities Investor Protection Corporation) protection exists in the McGinn Smith cases, this explanation is being posted by the Receiver. SIPC protection as a general matter is for cash and securities, such as stocks and bonds, held by a customer at a brokerage firm protected by SIPC. At this point, it appears that the investments in the McGinn Smith case were not purchased from the licensed broker dealer, McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc. UPDATE:  The latest SEC letter to the Court on this subject is described in Announcement 24 below.

      The SEC has advised the Receiver that it is still considering whether it will make a coverage referral of the McGinn Smith case to SIPC.

      Investors may also wish to review the SIPC website at www.sipc.org/How/Covers.aspx.

      The SEC has filed a letter with the Court on this subject. See Docket No. 391 below. For a further update, see Announcement 26 below.

    15. November 8, 2011: SMITH ACCOUNTANT PLEADS GUILTY - A certified public accountant has pled guilty to one count of Delivering and Disclosing a false Federal Income Tax Return in 2007 for Lynn and David Smith. The transactions at issue arose out of TDM Cable Funding LLC in 2006. The same accountant also prepared audited financial statements and tax returns for McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc. and its related entities. He will be sentenced at a later date. A copy of the U.S. Attorney’s press release may be read by clicking here.

    16. November 16, 2011: RECEIVER’S REPORT - The Receiver’s Second Written Report was filed with the Court (Docket No. 425 below).

    17. November 21, 2011: SALE OF MCGINN RESIDENCE - The short sale of the McGinn residence closed on November 18, 2011 per prior Court Orders (Docket Nos. 276 and 337). $15,000 in net sale proceeds were paid to the Receiver. One-half of that amount was deposited into a Receiver’s account, and the other one-half paid to Nancy McGinn per prior Court Order. The house was overencumbered by liens, and the second mortgagee accepted a substantial payment discount from what it was owed but agreed to release proceeds to the Receiver in return for the Receiver arranging the sale.

    18. November 29, 2011: MCGINN, SMITH & CO., INC. MANAGING DIRECTOR PLEADS GUILTY – Matthew Rodgers, a former senior managing director of McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc., pled guilty today to one count of filing a false income tax return.  He will be sentenced at a later date.  A copy of the press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office may be read by clicking here.

    19. December 9, 2011: NOTICE OF RECEIVER’S INTENT TO ABANDON AND DESTROY CERTAIN RECORDS – The Receiver intends to abandon and shred certain non-material records after December 19, 2011. Docket No. 427 below describes the records and the proposed process.

    20. December 22, 2011: STATUS OF SEC LAWSUIT – The discovery phase of the SEC lawsuit has ended. See Docket No. 428 below. UPDATE: September 25, 2012: The SEC’s lawsuit has been stayed pending the outcome of the Government’s criminal trial against Messrs. McGinn and Smith. See Announcement 22 below.

    21. January 26, 2012: CRIMINAL INDICTMENT OF TIMOTHY M. MCGINN AND DAVID L. SMITH – Messrs. McGinn and Smith were criminally indicted today on multiple federal criminal charges. A copy of the Indictment can be read by clicking here. A copy of the Department of Justice press release which describes the Indictment can be read by clicking here. UPDATE: September 25, 2012: The criminal trial is scheduled to commence on November 13, 2012 in Utica, New York. UPDATE: October 12, 2012: See Announcement 31 below regarding superseding indictment.

    22. March 26, 2012: STAY OF SEC LAWSUIT – The United States Attorney, as a result of the pending criminal proceedings against Messrs. McGinn and Smith, has requested and been granted a stay of dispositive motions and trial in the SEC’s civil lawsuit. See Docket No. 474 below. Such a stay is customary when there are parallel criminal and civil proceedings. The Order does not stay the activities and responsibilities of the Receiver.

    23. April 5, 2012: DECISION ON MOTIONS BY TIMOTHY MCGINN, DAVID SMITH AND THE SMITH TRUST FOR THE RELEASE OF ASSETS - The District Court has granted in part and denied in part the Motions of Messrs. McGinn and Smith for the release of certain assets to pay the costs of their criminal defense. In the case of Mr. McGinn, the Court allows him to sell or monetize 9 of 10 items listed on pages 8-9 of the Memorandum-Decision and Order at Docket No. 478 below. As to Mr. Smith, he is allowed to use up to $181,000 in his 401-K account, and $8,135 from his IRA. In each instance, the Court has established a structured procedure supervised by the Court for the liquidation of the approved assets and for the allowance of fees and expenses to criminal defense counsel. As to the Trust, the Court clarified that its intention is for the Receiver to control, manage and pay the expenses of the Trust’s assets and denied the Trust’s Motion for reimbursement of expenses and the release of assets to pay its attorneys fees, in part, because “the interests of defrauded investors in preserving the frozen assets substantially outweighs the interests of the Trust in releasing assets to pay attorney’s fees and costs.” The Memorandum-Decision and Order is at Docket No. 478 below.

    24. May 23, 2012: SEC LETTER REGARDING SIPC COVERAGE - The SEC has sent an update letter to Judge Homer regarding potential SIPC coverage.  The letter is available at Docket No. 491 below.  In summary, the SEC is advising the Court and investors that a pending decision by another federal court in an action commenced by the SEC against SIPC involving the Stanford Group Company (“SGC”) will be relevant to the McGinn Smith case.  The SEC anticipates that the Commission will consider “whether to request that SIPC initiate a liquidation proceeding for the benefit of McGinn Smith investors, or to seek any relief under SIPA, after the [other federal] court renders a decision in the SGC matter.” UPDATE: See Announcement 27 below.

    25. September 25, 2012: MESSAGE TO MCGINN SMITH INVESTORS REGARDING ASSETS COLLECTED - As of the close of business on September 21, 2012, the Receiver’s accounts have a balance of $12,088,156.56. Of this amount, approximately $2,020,630.46 represents proceeds held from property in the name of Lynn Smith or the Smith Trust. The latter monies are being held pending a final Order of the Court regarding their disposition as a result of prior Court decisions.

    26. September 25, 2012: MCGINN, SMITH & CO. INC. CFO PLEADS GUILTY - Brian Shea, the former chief financial officer and controller of McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc. has pled guilty to one count of interfering with the administration of the internal revenue laws (26 U.S.C. § 7212(a)). He will be sentenced at a later date. A copy of the press release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office may be read by clicking here.

    27. September 25, 2012: SIPC COVERAGE UPDATE - The United States District Court for the District of Columbia denied the SEC’s request for a court order compelling SIPC to commence a liquidating proceeding to provide defrauded investors with SIPA coverage in the Stanford Group Company case. The Court’s decision was based on the fact that the investors were not “customers” of the SIPC member (the broker-dealer) because they paid their money to a non-SIPC member; i.e. a non-broker dealer.

      The SEC appealed that decision on August 31, 2012. The appeal is pending.

      Similar to the Stanford case, the evidence reviewed to date by the Receiver and the SEC in the McGinn Smith case indicates that investors paid their money to the promoted investment and not to McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc., the broker-dealer.  On that basis and consistent with the decision of the District of Columbia Court pending the outcome of the SEC’s appeal of that decision, the SEC faces the same problem in this case as in Stanford in pursuing SIPA coverage for defrauded investors under existing law.

    28. September 25, 2012: CLAIMS PROCESS UPDATE – The resolution of any disputed, contingent or unliquidated claims will likely be deferred until after the conclusion of the Government’s criminal indictment of Messrs. McGinn and Smith and the SEC’s civil action since many of the legal and factual issues will be identical.

    29. September 25, 2012: INTERIM DISTRIBUTION STATUS –The Receiver expects to file a Motion with the Court shortly requesting approval to make a limited interim distribution to allowed claims.  Further details will be posted to this website.

    30. October 2, 2012: MARK CASOLO INDICTMENT – Mr. Casolo is a former McGinn, Smith & Co. Inc. broker who has been criminally indicted by the Albany County District Attorney. It appears that the alleged criminal acts for which Mr. Casolo has been indicted took place after Mr. Casolo left McGinn Smith.

    31. October 12, 2012 (Updated as of October 19 and 25 and November 14, 2012): SUPERSEDING INDICTMENT OF DAVID L. SMITH AND TIMOTHY M. MCGINN AND STATUS OF CRIMINAL TRIAL – The United States Attorney late yesterday announced a superseding criminal indictment of Messrs. Smith and McGinn (See Announcement 21 above regarding the original January 26, 2012 criminal indictment). The superseding indictment alleges additional criminal counts including for mail and wire fraud, securities fraud and filing a false income tax returns. A copy of the press release from the Department of Justice can be read by clicking here. A copy of the Superseding Indictment can be read by clicking here.

      On October 15, 2012, the defendants filed a motion seeking a continuance of the criminal trial. The United States has until October 22, 2012 to respond, and the Court will hold a status conference on October 25, 2012.

      At the pre-trial conference on October 25, 2012, the Court set a final pre-trial conference, jury selection and trial for November 19, 2012 commencing at 9:30 a.m.

      On November 14, 2012, the District Court issued an Order directing the criminal trial to begin on January 7, 2013 due to the extensive witness and exhibit lists which had been filed with the Court which would make it unlikely that the trial would be completed prior to the upcoming holidays.  The Court stated it will not entertain any further motions for a continuance or adjournment of the trial.

      The criminal trial commenced on January 7, 2013.  See announcement at top of website for further details.

    32. November 5, 2012 (Updated November 19 and 29, 2012): SETON HALL ASSOCIATES MOTION TO APPROVE SETTLEMENT WITH SETON HEALTH SYSTEM, INC. WITH RESPECT TO A CERTAIN GROUND LEASE – On November 2, 2012, the Receiver filed a Motion (see Docket No. 544 below) to approve a settlement with Seton Health System, Inc. (formerly St. Mary’s Hospital of Troy) providing for the surrender of a ground lease dated January 27, 1982 in exchange for a payment of $70,000, relieving the estate of real property taxes and charges exceeding $372,000, and releasing the estates from all obligations under the ground lease and related obligations. Full details are contained in the Motion. The Motion will be heard by the Court on November 16, 2012 at 11 a.m.

      The Court approved the Motion, and a closing is scheduled prior to the end of November 2012. The lease termination and sale closed on November 29, 2012. The proceeds have been deposited into the Receiver's Seton Hall bank account.


  2. Claims Process

    1. February 1, 2012: CLAIMS PROCESS MOTION IS FILED AND APPROVED (Updated March 2, 12, and 21, 2012 and April 5 and 17, 2012) – The Receiver has filed a Motion with the Court to establish a process for the fixing and allowance of investor and creditor claims.
