SEC sues former Wayzata hedge fund

A number of sources are reporting that the Securities and Exchange Commission is suing a former Wayzata located hedge fund that has moved to San Francisco. Here is an excerpt from a Star Tribune article: The SEC alleges that former Minneapolis resident John Lawton misled investors about the successes of the fund, Paramount Partners, and overstated its balance sheet to hide some losses.

Apparently Lawton and the hedge fund moved to San Francisco about a year ago. He has to respond to a US Federal court by noon today via a temporary restraining order.

    It is interesting that so many managers have been ousted as frauds or have misrepresented their performance. Investors need to make sure that their managers are telling them the truth - no longer is it acceptable for investors to blindly trust hedge fund start up managers.
