Lazaro Quoted in Article on FINRA Arbitrator Fraud

Director of the Law School’s Securities Arbitration Clinic Christine Lazaro was quoted in a recent article, Should Dozens of FINRA Arbitration Cases Be Reopened?  The article centers on a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrator who was removed from FINRA’s arbitrator roster after falsely claiming to be a lawyer.  The main issue is whether there is any remedy with respect to the cases in which he served as an arbitrator over the past 15 years.  Here’s an excerpt:
