PFG Forex Metals Legal Account

The Trustee filed a Motion seeking Summary Judgment on Count IV of our Adversary Complaint. Count IV basically states that we should be considered customers under bankruptcy code as our contracts fall within the catch-all definition of “commodity contracts” as similar to other contracts traded by other customers. The CFTC has also filed a Memorandum in Support of the Trustee’s Motion for Summary Judgment. They are opposing our claim that we fall under the “similar to” contracts clause in the definition of “commodity contracts”. Our attorneys spent weeks composing their lengthy rebuttal and also stated that there is too much information available to determine this matter outside of trial. This statement is similar to what Judge Doyle had written in her previous Memorandum Opinion in which she upheld 3 of our 4 counts. The Motion for Summary Judgment is scheduled to be heard by Judge Doyle during the Status Hearing on Wednesday, April 23.
