The CFTC charged Jay C. Nolan of Wilmette, Ill. and his company, Lodge Capital Group, LLC with commodity pool fraud. According to the complaint, from at least December 2004 to the present, the defendants fraudulently solicited approximately $3.9 million from at least five individuals. The complaint charges that Nolan and Lodge Capital made misrepresentations and failed to disclose material facts to pool participants regarding the profitability of the pool and the performance of the participants’ investments in the pool. In its continuing litigation, the CFTC seeks a return of ill-gotten gains, restitution to defrauded customers, civil monetary penalties and permanent injunctions prohibiting the defendants from violating federal commodity laws and from engaging in further trading.
