Pending Dispute

On January 13, 2023, a trustee filed a dispute alleging that Scott Anderson made misrepresentations and violated the suitability rule in connection with a death benefit to which the trust and its beneficiaries are entitled.

Specifically, the trustee alleged that the trust made certain decisions because Scott Anderson claimed that the death benefit would not decrease if it was deferred, which allegedly later proved to be incorrect. This misconduct allegedly took place between August 2, 2021, and March 8, 2022.

The trustee seeks $423,191.01 in damages in this pending dispute.
