Obtained dismissal with prejudice of claims led in state court against JP Morgan Securities and JP Morgan Chase by beneficiaries of a securities customer IRA. The claims should have been made in a FINRA case due to customer agreements to arbitrate. Our alternate relief request was to send any claims that survived our motion to dismiss to FINRA arbitration. We demonstrated that the plaintiffs could not state a claim as a matter of law, because they could not prove causation. All claims were dismissed.
