The award against Imperial Credit Industries, Inc.

Among other claims, Ms. Resnick alleged that Imperial defrauded her in its acquisition of the firm. Imperial filed a counterclaim against Ms. Resnick alleging damages of more than $800,000, which was denied in its entirety by the arbitration panel.
Ms. Resnick is the president of The Resnick Group, a Los Angeles based investment advisory firm, an author and lecturer.
Ms. Resnick was represented by Aidikoff & Uhl, a Beverly Hills and Palm Springs, California law firm that represents clients against brokerage firms in securities arbitrations. According to Robert A. Uhl, “awards this large are unusual in securities arbitrations.”
