III, IV, V and/or VI on or after September 18, 2006.

The class action alleges that the defendant brokerage firms made materially false and misleading representations in the sale of the sale of the Medical Capital Notes. This class action has not yet been certified by the court. If the class is certified, the parties will be required to submit a proposed timeline for class members that want to opt out of the class action. Class members that elect to opt out can file a claim for their Medical Capital losses with FINRA. For more information about opting out of a class action and submitting an arbitration claim, please see our blog posting: Securities Arbitration vs. Class Actions: Consider Your Options. Investors who purchased Medical Capital Notes from brokerage firms that were not named as defendants are currently not included in the class action. If you believe you have a meritorious securities claim, speak with a securities attorney to discuss your rights and the advisability of opting out based on your individual circumstances.
