BOCA RATON, Fla.–LAWFUEL – US Business & Law News –vFinance, Inc. (OTCBB:VFIN), a financial services company that is an industry leader in providing high growth companies and investors seeking above market returns access to a full range of investment banking, trading and investment opportunities, intends to give notice of a Federal Rule 11 claim seeking sanctions against plaintiffs and their attorneys in the Dobi Medical matter for their filing of frivolous and baseless claims against vFinance, Inc.
Plaintiff’s originally filed a lawsuit against Sterling Financial in 2005 prior to vFinance’s acquisition of certain select assets from Sterling Financial which was closed May 11, 2006. vFinance did not assume any liabilities of Sterling Financial in that transaction in which vFinance paid adequate consideration following a thorough review and approval by the NASD over a 4 month period and for which Sterling obtained an independent fairness opinion. Additionally, Sterling was originally indemnified by Dobi Medical.
vFinance, Inc. believes that these claims against it are completely without merit and vFinance will vigorously seek sanctions against the plaintiffs and their attorneys for this frivolous lawsuit. “With our legal system any company or person can be sued but fortunately there are federal court remedies for victims like vFinance against this abuse of the legal system and appropriate sanctions which can be enforced,” said Leonard Sokolow, CEO and President of vFinance, Inc.
