5 Questions Answered

Q. How log does it usually take for a class action lawsuit to be settled.
A: There is no easy answer. Each area of law (e.g. employment, antitrust, unsafe drugs) has a rough timeline for how long cases usually take, but the keyword is usually. And each case is different. Many cases are resolved in 2-5 years, but some take less time and many take more. Best of luck.
Q. I have a stock certificate for Superior Oil in 1980 issued to my Grandmother which I did not inherit. How do I found ou
A: In March 1984, Superior Oil was acquired by Mobil Corporation (now part of ExxonMobil). At that time, Superior was the nation's largest independent oil producer. You can contact Exxon Mobil Shareholder Services via their website - http://ir.exxonmobil.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=115024&p=irol-shareholderservices to assist you in researching this issue.
Q. What can I do to get my money back from Private Shares in company I invested. (Not publicly traded)
A: You should discuss the situation with a lawyer that specializes in securities law. Many will offer free initial consultations, and they can give a more in depth answer since you will be able to share more details with them than this process allows. The answer should be in documents you received at the time of your investment, such as a subscription agreement. Best of luck.
Q. What is court solution to corporate defrauding of stockholders
A: It depends on what the company did, and to some extent whether they are a publicly traded company. You should contact an attorney that specialized in securities law matters and discuss what you believe the basis of your claim is. You may have civil remedies available to you, or in extreme circumstances, there may be grounds for you to seek criminal charges. Best of luck.
Q. On 3/21/13 I filled out an app. for a brokerage account a PNC. They withdrew 200,000 from checking to acct. Can I cancel
A: The answer depends on what they withdrew the money for, and what agreements you may have signed with PNC. If it was just to fund your account, then it should be very easy to reverse the transaction. If, on the other hand, it was to buy securities, and those securities have already been purchased, then you may have to pay certain transaction and other fees to liquidate the securities and get the cash back. You should review the account documents that you signed or agreed to, and consider talking to an attorney that handles securities law matters. You can use the lawyer directory to find one locally. Best of luck.
