Litigation Release No. 24105 / April 9, 2018
Securities and Exchange Commission v. Benjamin Wey, et al., Civil Action No. 15-cv-07116-PKC (S.D.N.Y. filed Sept. 10, 2015)
On September 1, 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission
voluntarily dismissed its claims against defendants Benjamin Wey, New
York Global Group, Michaela Wey, Robert Newman, and William Uchimoto.
In bringing charges against these defendants, the SEC had relied on
evidence that was later suppressed in a parallel criminal proceeding and
determined that its ability to rely on the suppressed evidence may also
be affected. On September 1, 2017 and October 27, 2017, the SEC
voluntarily dismissed its claims against relief defendants Advantage
Consultants, Ltd., York Capital Management, Ltd., Four Tong Investments,
Ltd., Strong Growth Capital, Ltd., Median Assets Investments, Ltd., and
Han Hua, Ltd., as those entities had been dissolved. On March 8, 2018,
the SEC voluntarily dismissed its claims against Tianyi Wei. The SEC's
litigation against Seref Dogan Erbek is continuing. The SEC's
complaint alleges violations or the aiding and abetting of violations of
the antifraud provisions and the disclosure and reporting provisions of
the federal securities laws.
