Judge Orders Aequitas Capital Management, Inc. to Set Aside $2.5 Million Ahead of Trial

A federal judge has ordered fast-growing investment firm Aequitas Capital Management Inc. to set aside nearly $2.5 million ahead of a December trial in a civil lawsuit. The lawsuit relates to commissions on a portfolio of student loans. Plaintiffs American Student Financial Group Inc. and TD Consulting LLC allege Aequitas owes $2.48 million in commissions and asked U.S. District Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo for a writ of attachment that would require Aequitas to essentially put the money in escrow until trial. Such writs of attachment are rare and must pass a difficult four-part test, including establishing 'probable validity,' meaning the outcome will likely favor the plaintiff. In her order granting the writ of attachment, Bencivengo said the plaintiffs satisfied the requirements. She also noted Aequitas has already paid nearly $15 million in commissions. The Lake Oswego-based investment firm raises money from institutional investors and wealthy families and invests it using various strategies, including buying unpaid patient hospital bills and student loans. The firm has been on a hot streak since winning a large lawsuit in 2011 related to a different soured deal to buy $50 million in loans from CashReady LLC, a Southern California small business lender. In May it announced that it secured a $60 million line of credit for its CarePayment subsidiary from Bank of America. It also recently invested in QuarterSpot, an online lender that serves small businesses. Earlier this year it announced the acquisition of Portland's Maple Bay Asset Management, which employs five and manages about $1 million in assets, according to the firm's latest annual report.
