  • Calton & Associates (2019-Present)

The Allegations

  • In March 2019, a customer alleged that Bart Bohrer violated Federal Securities Laws, violated the Minnesota Securities Act, and violated FINRA rules. This case is currently pending. The customer is seeking $445,000 in damages.
  • In October 2019, a customer alleged that Bart Bohrer violated federal securities laws, breached contract, and breached his fiduciary duty. This case is currently pending. The customer is seeking $5,000 in damages.
  • In December 2019, customers alleged that Bart Bohrer breached his fiduciary duty, violated the Georgia Uniform Securities Act, breached contract, and handled their account negligently. This case is currently pending. The customers are seeking $489,681 in damages.

What Does This Mean?

The most notable allegation levied against Bart Bohrer was that he breached the fiduciary duty he had to his customers. This duty compels securities brokers to always act in their customers best financial interests. This duty can be breached in multiple ways. This includes fraudulently recommending investments to customers that are financially beneficial to themselves, but detrimental to the investor. It also includes negligently failing to conduct the necessary due diligence to determine what investments are actually suitable for their customers.
