Attorney Courtney M. Werning authored an article on Ohio securities laws entitled
Ohio Securities Act – the Need for Modernization of Remedies. The article was published in the most recent edition of the Ohio Division
of Securities Quarterly Bulletin. The Division of Securities is a department
under the Ohio Department of Commerce and administers and enforces the
Ohio Securities Act. It licenses securities salespeople and the securities
themselves, and when Ohio securities law is violated, the Division can
pursue administrative and civil actions.
In this article, Ms. Werning details why Ohio investors are at a disadvantage
when it comes to the civil remedies available to victims of investment
fraud and misconduct when compared to other state’s laws. Ms. Yeager
makes the argument that Ohio should be brought into the majority of states
that allow for attorneys’ fees as an available remedy for the winning
party in securities litigation.
