He was also accused of engaging in misappropriation, forgery, fraud, and unauthorized trading in unsuitable transactions. The customer lost $1,800,000 in damages. That claim is currently pending. Brokerage firms such as Capitol Securities are required to reasonably supervise their brokers so as to make sure that they do not violate securities laws.
