HOUSTON – A Houston corporation alleges its investment advisers failed to disclose a business it invested in was failing.
DMM Group Inc. filed a complaint on Sept. 13 in the Harris County District Court against J. Patrick Magill, Paul Cherry and J. Patrick Magill PC alleging fraud, negligent misrepresentation and other counts.
