Investigative Columnist Dave Lieber wrote “The Doc Gallagher case is one the Watchdog has covered for three years.  The receiver, Cort Thomas, is trying to recoup money for several hundred victims who lost a total of $30 million.”  Past articles by Mr. Lieber on this topic, including last week’s, can be found here.  More information regarding the Gallagher Receivership is here.

Cort Thomas is a business and commercial litigator who frequently serves as a Receiver, including an appointment this week as Receiver in an SEC fraud case brought by the SEC.  (Read the SEC and U.S. Department of Justice press releases here and here.)  Mr. Thomas also served on the Brown Fox trial team that recently secured a $4.5 million jury verdict on behalf of a member who had withdrawn from a Dallas company in 2015.
