VINDICATED AMERICAN FINANCIER BENJAMIN WEY HIRES PLAINTIFFS LAWYERS, SEEKS DAMAGES, JUSTICE

BENJAMIN WEY, a vindicated citizen, a winner for the American Justice

BENJAMIN WEY, a persistent fighting spirit and the well-known New York financier, CEO of private equity investment firm New York Global Group has staunchly maintained his innocence under the cloud of an indictment over the last two years. Mr. Wey’s vindication arrived on August 8, 2017 when Manhattan federal prosecutors voluntarily dropped all charges against the principled financier – a self-made New York business mogul who has helped create tens of thousands of jobs spanning two decades. On September 1, 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission quietly voluntarily dismissed all charges in a parallel case. Mr. Wey was exonerated. He won.

In the last 25 years, the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office willingly dismissed 4 white-collar matters amid 24,000 cases of all sorts during the same period. Benjamin Wey was the fourth one wrongfully accused, now fighting back as an innocent citizen.

His victory came at a hefty price. His successful businesses were lost, his reputation tarnished.

Benjamin Wey was falsely accused in September 2015 amid a political whirlwind of “getting tough on CEOs in finance” – fed by outright lies told by NASDAQ, FINRA. Beyond mere allegations, not a shred of credible evidence against him was substantiated in court. After replacing five prosecutors on Mr. Wey’s case, the SDNY prosecutors abruptly dismissed all charges on the eve of an August 2017 deadline to turn over trial evidence to Mr. Wey’s army of eight Haynes and Boone Lawyers. In less than 30 minutes, a federal judge ended the misguided indictment and vindicated Mr. Wey.

Despite the two-year ordeal, Benjamin Wey is pleased with the outcome, keeping his faith in America’s justice system. “As an American, I am very proud to be vindicated by the Court,” Benjamin Wey told reporters. “I was wrongfully accused. The new US Attorney has dismissed this case which was falsely brought by his disgraced predecessor Preet Bharara. The prosecutors, SEC staff and FBI agents were played like fools by a corrupt SRO (Self-regulatory Organization) regime that has implicated the most senior management, board members at NASDAQ and FINRA.”

“We are not members of NASDAQ or FINRA, therefore they have no jurisdiction, ‘regulatory immunity’ or regulatory purview over the non-member investing public. But NASDAQ, FINRA lied to the FBI, DOJ, SEC and defrauded government authorities to serve their own commercial interests and irreparably harmed us. “

Benjamin Wey, David Siegal Landmark Legal Victory A Positive Impact on the Civil Rights of a Nation

Benjamin Wey’s vindication comes in the wake of a June 2017 landmark ruling by the courageous U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, condemning unlawful conduct by the gullible FBI agents who were misled by NASDAQ’s lies – directed by a notorious former SDNY prosecutor David Massey, a fraudster at law firm Richards, Kibbe & Orbe, earning millions for himself and his FINRA wife TRACY TIMBERS, shamelessly touting the botched Benjamin Wey case puffing their flimsy resumes, buying multi-million dollar homes riding on Mr. Wey’s scalp.

“Mr. Wey has hired nationally recognized plaintiffs lawyers – among them the billion-dollar litigators in the tobacco and BP oil spill litigations,” a spokesman for Benjamin Wey told the media. “A dream legal team has been assembled, backed by extensive resources. Mr. Wey has been harmed by liars at the NASDAQ, FINRA, his rights violated.”

Mr. Wey vows to seek justice. “I now have a life mission to see no others would get ‘raped’ by SROs like NASDAQ or FINRA. If it costs $100 millions to litigate, devoting my entire life time, we will win this war – along the way we will publicly expose the liars, shout out their names in the media, chase their personal assets.”

NASDAQ, FINRA: the culprits behind $1 billion in Damages, the racist ‘Nasdaq Spirit’

The war between the money-grabbing, publicly traded NASDAQ worth $13 billion and the highly successful American financier, investigative journalist Benjamin Wey was instigated by the NASDAQ in 2011 when NASDAQ was caught lying, cheating and stealing, rigging the delisting of a China-based company, reported by Forbes. In retaliation, NASDAQ general counsel Ed Knight directed NASDAQ staff to lie to the FBI, SEC, DOJ, fabricate false claims, squeezing the resourceful financier Benjamin Wey to the point of the NASDAQ wanting to see the man rot in prison for 20 years.

The Forbes Magazine told a great 2013 background story about how the NASDAQ and FINRA rigged the 2010 delisting of China-based, NASDAQ-listed CleanTech Innovations, Inc. – Mr. Wey’s former client. CleanTech produces wind mill towers and was hiring 300 workers in New Jersey before its abrupt delisting by the NASDAQ in early 2011 – only a month after its NASDAQ debut. Mr. Wey’s institutional clients, including the powerful Apollo Management had invested $30 million into CleanTech, believing the clean energy company would become a major employer in New Jersey during the global financial crisis, creating high-paying American jobs. The surprised delisting cost Apollo Management and other investors hundreds of millions in direct losses.

ADENA FRIEDMAN, MICHAEL R. SPLINTER, ED KNIGHT, MELISSA M ARNOLDI, JOHN RAINEY JR, ALAN ROWLAND, MICHAEL EMEN, WILLIAM SLATTERY, BRUCE AUST, NASDAQ STOCK MARKETNASDAQ’s answer for the delisting was filled with mind-boggling racial hatred, quoting from hearing transcripts:

“CleanTech has not violated any NASDAQ’s rules, but it has violated the NASDAQ spirit...” NASDAQ listing staff Michael Emen, Ed Knight, Arnold Golub, William Slattery, Alan Rowland said during a delisting hearing.

“…NASDAQ must delist CleanTech to send a message to the world… it’s not open season for the 1.4 billion Chinese to cheat on the NASDAQ…” NASDAQ told a hearing panel.

“Violating the NASDAQ Spirit” in order to “send a message to the world” to “warn the Chinese” was NASDAQ’s publicly stated ground for delisting CleanTech. What’s a “NASDAQ Spirit?” It’s not in NASDAQ’s listing rules. But $500 million in shareholder value vaporized, public shareholders retirement savings were wiped out.

Two years later in 2013, the five SEC Commissioners led by Mary Jo White issued a unanimous, historic ruling condemning the racist “NASDAQ Spirit”: “[T]he record does not show that the specific grounds on which Nasdaq based its CleanTech delisting decision exist in fact,” SEC Commissioners concluded.

Senator Arlen Specter sued NASDAQ for racial profiling

Former US senator Arlen Specter, representing CleanTech, sued the NASDAQ in 2012 for racial profiling and discrimination. CleanTech disclosed the details of the lawsuit through an SEC 8-K filing. In a press release, Senator Specter commented: “As noted in my letters of January 12, 2012 to Secretary of Commerce Bryson and Trade Representative Kirk, I have undertaken representation of CleanTech because of evidence of racist discrimination against the Company because it is Chinese…”

The civil rights lawsuit exposed NASDAQ’s institutional racism. Read more: PRESS RELEASE: CleanTech Innovations, Inc. Sues the NASDAQ Stock Market for Racism and Discrimination. NASDAQ was furious. It sought revenge by lying to FBI agents, fabricating a case against Mr. Wey and CleanTech.

 NASDAQ general counsel Ed Knight, a notorious former Washington lobbyist personally led an effort to ruin CleanTech and its investors by lying to the SEC, FBI and DOJ.

Misled by NASDAQ, the duped SEC, DOJ and FBI agents “drank the NASDAQ Kool-Aid.”

On January 25, 2012, seven days after NASDAQ was sued for racism in a highly publicized lawsuit, twenty FBI agents barged into Benjamin Wey’s home and offices specifically looking for “evidence of misleading the NASDAQ” and “paper stock certificates.”

But the FBI agents found nothing because there was none. “We are financiers like Warren Buffett. We introduce capital that helps grow jobs. NASDAQ is one of 60 stock exchanges worldwide,” Benjamin Wey told reporters at The Wall Street Journal. “NASDAQ listing is a commodity service. We could care less where a company wants to list its shares.”

“For years, senior NASDAQ staff visited us often, regularly played golf with our people, held joint marketing events with us, thanked us, repeatedly pitching us to introduce clients to the NASDAQ while they trash-talked their competitor the NYSE. But NASDAQ screwed us over.”

A fabricated ‘NASDAQ 300 round lot shareholders gifting rule prohibition’

In their sworn affidavits, FBI agents Matt Komar and Thomas McGuire made clear NASDAQ was the source for their case against Benjamin Wey. The FBI agents testified that NASDAQ had told them Mr. Wey and attorney William Uchimoto had violated a “NASDAQ 300 round lot shareholders gifting rule prohibition,” therefore “misled the NASDAQ during their clients’ NASDAQ listing applications.”

But the NASDAQ never had such a listing rule. Mr. Wey and Mr. Uchimoto were literally accused of violating a nonexistent NASDAQ rule – the basis for Mr. Wey’s indictment.

(Here’s the basics: If a Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO) like the NASDAQ wants to have a listing rule, it MUST file a Form 19b-4 with the SEC, which is required to publish it in the Federal Register seeking public comments, and issue a written Order to approve or disapprove, which is the rulemaking process under the law. Otherwise, there is NO rule, period. Nasdaq’s entire history of rulemaking is published (here) by the SEC – without ambiguity – NASDAQ never had a “300 round lot shareholders gifting rule prohibition.”) 

Between the FBI agents and NASDAQ Staff: Who lied?

“Our source against Mr. Wey pertaining to his misleading the NASDAQ comes from NASDAQ staff,” FBI agents Matt Komar, Thomas McGuire certified under oath in court filings.

Brady and 3500 materials produced by the prosecutors, obtained by Mr. Wey’s attorneys at Haynes and Boone also pointed to NASDAQ staff Ed Knight, Arnold Golub, Michael Emen, T. Sean Bennett, Gary Sundick, Traynham Mitchell, William Slattery and Alan Rowland as the direct NASDAQ sources that had fed federal agents with fabricated evidence. Their timing was no coincidence: On Jan 25, 2012, FBI agents rummaged through Mr. Wey’s home and offices specifically searching for “evidence of misleading the NASDAQ,” seven days after CleanTech’s counsel Senator Arlen Specter had sued the NASDAQ for racism on Jan 18, 2012, announced in an explosive press release.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)’s general counsel Robert Colby abetted the NASDAQ fraud. As FINRA’s largest customer, NASDAQ pays FINRA $30 million a year for market oversight services.

FINRA told FBI agents that January 25, 2012 would be a “perfect day” to raid Mr. Wey’s offices since FINRA had deliberately scheduled Mr. Wey’s in-house general counsel to serve a FINRA panel outside the office.

“The NASDAQ, directed by its general counsel Ed Knight, under the watch of NASDAQ CEO Adena Friedman – with the explicit consent of NASDAQ’s Board of Directors, defrauded the SEC, DOJ and FBI agents, committed crimes by lying to federal agents,” Benjamin Wey told reporters. “We have extensive evidence from the government revealing NASDAQ’s lies to the FBI.”

FBI Internal emails: NASDAQ lied to the FBI, ‘curiously missing’ NASDAQ meeting notes

David Massey, the disgraced former SDNY prosecutor who drafted the warrant to search Mr. Wey was told by NASDAQ that CleanTech was delisted because it had nefariously hidden its relationship with Mr. Wey in the listing process.  An email from David Massey to Patrick Feeney and Steven Susswein, SEC enforcement, dated Jan. 6, 2012, Subject: Facts of Manipulation, shed some light:

The email reads: “Two RTO issuers that Wey promoted..CleanTch has been delisted from stock exchanges as a result of their failure to disclose their relationship with Wey, according to NASDAQ.”

But Mr. Wey’s relationship with CleanTech was fully disclosed to NASDAQ. The NASDAQ not only knew it but also was part of it. William Uchimoto, Esq., a former SEC Division of Market Regulation attorney, and as CleanTech’s listing counsel, arranged an in-person, voluntary interview on November 5, 2010 between the Nasdaq staff and Mr. Wey at Nasdaq’s Rockville, MD offices. NASDAQ listing heads Gary Sudnick, Michael Emen, William Slattery, among six other Nasdaq staff attended, and were free to ask Mr. Wey any questions over a nonstop, five-hour meeting.  Mr. Uchimoto attended as CleanTech’s counsel, and Mr. Wey was present with his own two lawyers – litigators Barry Slotnick and Stuart Slotnick – who all kept detailed notes.  Following this meeting, the NASDAQ staff thanked Mr. Wey. A month later, NASDAQ approved CleanTech’s listing without qualification on December 10, 2010. NASDAQ’s senior marketing team thanked Mr. Wey’s firm for having introduced a listing client to the NASDAQ, skipping the NYSE.

To keep the Government in the dark about this meeting, NASDAQ general counsel Ed Knight and staff Gary Sundick, Arnold Golub, William Slattery curiously “could not locate” the notes of the November 5, 2010 meeting, which would have shown that Mr. Wey was not being questioned about CleanTech’s delisting, but was answering all disclosure inquiries made by nine senior NASDAQ staff in connection with their assessment whether to list CleanTech, which they collectively did so a month later on December 10, 2010.

On January 19, 2012, less than a week before the January 25, 2012 FBI raid on Mr. Wey, which was fed by NASDAQ, FBI Agent Matt Komar wrote to AUSA David Massey.  The FBI’s internal email subject line was “CTEK Delisting” and reads:

“I spoke to Gary Sundick from NASDAQ and he said they were unable to locate any of the notes from the November 5, 2010 meeting with Wey…” “interesting how NASDAQ spins its stories…” 

Instructed by Ed Knight, Gary Sundick, who was the head of Nasdaq Listing Investigations and a former SEC Assistant Director of Enforcement told the FBI agents all nine NASDAQ staff who had participated in the November 25, 2010 meeting with Benjamin Wey took notes. And those notes were subject to strict regulatory record-keeping requirements. But,

When pressed by the FBI agents the whereabouts of those meeting notes, NASDAQ lied to the FBI that all nine NASDAQ staffers’ meeting notes with Mr. Wey “went missing.”

Unbelievable. Unless these nine NASDAQ staff are already dead, their depositions in a civil litigation could easily doom the NASDAQ.

NASDAQ vs. SEC, FBI: take the bullet or the poison?

Clearly, Benjamin Wey was charged with violating a made-up NASDAQ listing rule, a critical point even conceded by federal prosecutors Sarah Eddy, Michael Ferrara, Ian McGinley in their June 2016 court filing before federal judge Alison Nathan.

Between the FBI agents’ sworn statements pointing fingers at the NASDAQ as their source, and the NASDAQ staff’s repeatedly altered stories – combined with their bizarre fairy tale of “suddenly missing” meeting notes, who lied?

NASDAQ now says it had nothing to do with the FBI agents’ sworn testimony relating to the fabricated NASDAQ listing rule violation, therefore leaving the FBI agents there hung out to dry.

But both the FBI and SEC have steadfastly maintained they charged Mr. Wey with a “crime of  violating a NASDAQ listing rule,” which was informed by the NASDAQ. But the NASDAQ never had such a rule. Who could’ve known NASDAQ’s listing rules better than the NASDAQ itself?

When deposed under oath, will SEC staff and FBI agents testify against themselves for making false statements to the Court, or would they dump on the NASDAQ for having misled federal agents – a crime?

It’s a choice between a bullet and poison. Let NASDAQ CEO Adena Friedman and Chairman Michael R. Splinter pick the criminals inside NASDAQ.

Lying to the FBI is a crime. That NASDAQ making the shit up opens itself to huge civil and criminal liabilities. Who at the NASDAQ have lied to the Court, the FBI and the US Attorney?

That “misleading the NASDAQ, violating a NASDAQ listing rule” is WRITTEN ALL OVER MR. WEY’S INDICTMENT, which doomed this innocent man’s life. The NASDAQ-fabricated charge weighed on Mr. Wey’s shoulders with the threat of a 20-year prison term, with his LIBERTY AND FREEDOM taken away from him, precipitated by NASDAQ’s lies to the government in a fabricated rule violation.

Between the FBI agents’ and NASDAQ staff’s conflicting statements, who obstructed justice? Who will be a “neutered NASDAQ dog” in this public fight? Would NASDAQ CEO Adena Friedman take the blame?

Reported by Forbes, “in a landmark decision in July 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission slapped down Nasdaq and reversed its decision to delist a Chinese alternative energy company. The SEC determined that CleanTech Innovations had not intentionally withheld crucial information from Nasdaq. “[T]he record does not show that the specific grounds on which Nasdaq based its delisting decision exist in fact,” concluded the SEC. “And the considerable discretion afforded to Nasdaq therefore does not permit its delisting decision.” The July 11 2013 ruling ended a listing dispute that had started three years before. This was the first time the SEC had reversed a Nasdaq listing decision since the NASDAQ’s inception nearly 50 years ago.”

Crushing NASDAQ’s ‘Regulatory Immunity’ BS in federal court

Since 2010, under the glitzy NASDAQ CEO ADENA FRIEDMAN and NASDAQ Chairman MICHAEL R. SPLINTER, NASDAQ staff WILLIAM SLATTERY, ALAN ROWLAND, ED KNIGHT, MICHAEL EMEN, ARNOLD GOLUB have repeatedly lied to the SEC, DOJ and FBI agents, launching a series of vindictive, false accusations against Benjamin Wey.

Adena Friedman, NASDAQ CEO, Nasdaq Stock Market, Ed Knight, Fraud, Alan Rowland, William Slattery, Michael Emen, Eric Noll Fraud

An investigative story by Law360 titled Nasdaq Ordered To Turn Over Docs To PE CEO In Fraud Case reported on NASDAQ’s lies to the court. In May 2017, NASDAQ claimed it was entitled to “absolute regulatory immunity,” therefore would reject Mr. Wey’s subpoena order to produce documents backing the SEC, DOJ’s claims of “Wey misleading the NASDAQ.” NASDAQ’s racy Gibson Dunn lawyers Douglas Cox, Michael Huston argued NASDAQ was protected under “absolute regulatory immunity during NASDAQ listing, law enforcement and investigative privilege.”

But federal judge Alison Nathan quickly shut down NASDAQ’s nonsense. “And in the absence of direct authority for the absolute immunity from similar subpoenas of quasi-governmental entities like SROs, the court finds compelling reasons to decline to recognize such immunity here.” The federal judge was no less adamant in rejecting NASDAQ’s claims of privilege, calling them “procedurally improper and substantively lacking.” Read moreDisgraced Gibson Dunn Lawyer MICHAEL HUSTON Implicated in NASDAQ Regulatory Rape.

Under Court Order, NASDAQ grudgingly produced documents to Mr. Wey’s counsel in early June 2017 and certified in writing its production was complete. Guess how many times Mr. Wey had “misled the NASDAQ” or communicated in any form at all with NASDAQ staff during company listing applications? Zero. None. Zero! The NASDAQ thieves got caught!

Nasdaq Chairman Michael Oxley implicated, dirty Washington Politics

In letters addressed to NASDAQ’s Board of Directors in 2014 from CleanTech’s adviser, former Congressman Steve LaTourette, NASDAQ chairman Michael Oxley was personally involved in settling claims with CleanTech. Pressured by NASDAQ’s board, NASDAQ listing heads Michael Emen and Gary Sundick – the racists along with Ed Knight behind the “Nasdaq Spirit,” were fired. Their office clerk William Slattery took over as the new head of NASDAQ’s listing programs. William Slattery has since lied extensively to federal agents.

In 2014, a deal was brokered between Steve LaTourette and NASDAQ Chairman Michael Oxley, the author behind the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

In exchange for CleanTech not suing NASDAQ for wrongful delisting, NASDAQ general counsel Ed Knight agreed to leave CleanTech alone. Advised by Steve LaTourette and Michael Oxley, CleanTech merged with a silicon valley tech company and changed its name to 6D Global Technology, disclosed the Steven LaTourette, Michael Oxley arrangement in an SEC filing dated June 13, 2014.

But Ed Knight wanted the  revenge. NASDAQ promptly delisted CleanTech again in September 2015 when Benjamin Wey was wrongfully indicted on charges of violating a nonexistent NASDAQ listing rule – lies fed by NASDAQ to the FBI agents.

During delisting hearings in 2016, NASDAQ staff ALAN ROWLAND, ARNOLD GOLUB, WILLIAM SLATTERY said on the record that accusations against Mr. Wey were the only reasons for the delisting. But on appeal to the SEC, NASDAQ changed its story.

Unable to rebut the fact that DOJ had dropped all charges against Benjamin Wey, NASDAQ did an 180-degree reversal, claiming “Mr. Wey had nothing to do with NASDAQ’s  delisting of CleanTech/6D Global.”

NASDAQ’s wrongful delisting of CleanTech for the second time in two years cost shareholders another $800 million in damages, exposed in a 2017 Forbes article. For the second time, CleanTech/6D Global’s share price went from $20 to $0, thanks to the NASDAQ rape – the certain graveyard for investors.

NASDAQ misled Antonia Chion, Corruption at the SEC

ANTONIA CHION had just missed the massive Bernie Madoff fraud, costing investors billions. An obscure former country prosecutor who’s made a career chasing petty shoplifters in the rural Kings County New York, ANTONIA CHION was deeply embroiled in the Bernie Madoff fraud. She was on the verge of being fired for incompetence, sources say. An ostensible bureaucratic waste, ANTONIA CHION was searching for the next target to keep her job.

the May 17, 2017 meeting at the SEC, whistleblowers emerged

Feeling the heat, on May 17, 2017,  SEC Enforcement Director Stephanie Avakian personally invited William Uchimoto’s lawyers to a “friendly meeting” in Washington. According to meeting notes and emails reviewed by reporters, SEC enforcement staff Cheryl Crumpton, Steven Susswein, Patrick Feeney and Stephanie Avakian were quick to shift the blame to the NASDAQ, insisting “NASDAQ told the SEC there is a 300 round lot holders gifting rule prohibition William Uchimoto has violated… We relied on representations made by the NASDAQ…. they are the experts about their own stock exchange… Don’t blame the SEC…”

“But the NASDAQ never had a 300 round lot holders gifting rule prohibition,” said William Uchimoto’s attorney Daniel Zinman, a partner at Richards, Kibbe & Orbe who was present at the meeting facing off nine SEC enforcement staff headed by the politically connected SEC Enforcement Director Stephanie Avakian, whose husband is HOWARD EDWARD HEISS, a man twenty years her senior and the head of New York office for law firm O’Melveny & Myers – who is specialized in “SEC investigations.” SEC insiders say Stephanie Avakian’s meteoric rise from an obscure corporate nobody to the head of SEC Enforcement in a short few years was due in no small part to political money greasing the politicians from her hubby HOWARD E. HEISS.

“HOWARD HEISS has a track record for being creative in his approach… negotiating and fighting with the government, particularly before the SEC,” HOWARD HEISS’S website says. Well, at least, Mr. Heiss is honest about a “living room” shortcut through STEPHANIE AVAKIAN. Money is money. Who cares where it comes from.

“NASDAQ lied to the government and completely made up a nonexistent rule violation,” Daniel Zinman told the SEC.

Intense media interest over the dismissed Benjamin Wey case has attracted whistleblowers from inside the SEC, NASDAQ and FINRA.

Through a FOIA production by the Securities and Exchange Commission, other troubling facts have confirmed the alleged SEC staff corruption, collusion with shady SROs.

By June 2017, federal judge P. Kevin Castel dismissed all of the SEC’s charges against William Uchimoto.

Days later, the renowned federal judge Alison Nathan laid down the hammer on the FBI agents and NASDAQ’s lies. On June 13, 2017, the federal judge ruled that “The FBI agents – who are charged with reasonable knowledge of what the law prohibits – appear to have disregarded well-established constitutional principles that provide a bulwark against the execution of general warrants. That reflects, at the least, gross negligence or recklessness as to the potential for violation of the Fourth Amendment.”

The Justice Department declined to appeal, which has left the heroic Judge Alison Nathan’s order undisturbed – now the new law of the land with significantly enhanced protections for citizens’ constitutional rights.
