US Securities and Exchange Commission v. Wallin
MOTION by Plaintiff US Securities and Exchange Commission for judgment (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit 1 (Consent), # 2 Exhibit 2 (Judgment))(Qualls, Alyssa)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
UNITED STATES SECURITIES AND
JOHN F. WALLIN,
Civil Action No. 1:17-cv-7057
SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION’S
MOTION FOR ENTRY OF JUDGMENT
Plaintiff United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) hereby moves this
Court for entry of judgment as to Defendant John F. Wallin. In support thereof, the SEC states
On September 25, 2017, Defendant Wallin signed the Consent of Defendant John
F. Wallin, an executed copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.
In the Consent, Defendant Wallin agreed to entry of judgment against him.
Among other things, Defendant Wallin agreed to the issuance of an injunction restraining him
from violating the federal securities laws. (Ex. 1, ¶ 2.) Defendant Wallin also agreed that, upon
motion of the SEC, the Court shall determine whether it is appropriate to order a civil penalty
pursuant to Section 21(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 U.S.C. § 78u(d)(3), and,
if so, the amount of the civil penalty. (Ex. 1, ¶ 4.)
Exhibit 2 to this Motion is the agreed Judgment as to Defendant John F. Wallin.
The agreed Judgment reflects a bifurcated settlement. The Judgment includes a permanent
injunction, to be ordered now. The Judgment further contemplates a future determination by this
Court as to the propriety of a civil penalty and the amount thereof (following the filing of a
motion by the SEC, and the opportunity of Defendant to be heard on the matter).
WHEREFORE, Plaintiff United States Securities and Exchange Commission respectfully
requests that the Court grant its Motion; enter the Judgment set forth in Exhibit 2; and grant such
other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.
