DiGiorgio, CEO of Radius Capital Group, under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5, concerning allegedly false statements made in an RMBS prospectus.

The Court concluded that the complaint failed to plead adequately that defendant was the maker of the statements of issue, but granted leave to amend. Decision.
