Ex-CEO settles lawsuit over Va. bank’s collapse
Question of the Day
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Former Bank of the Commonwealth president and CEO Edward J. Woodard Jr. and federal regulators have settled a lawsuit stemming from the bank’s collapse.
As part of the settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the 70-year-old Woodard agreed to not serve on the board of any company that trades securities. He won’t have to pay a civil penalty.
Woodard, his son, another bank executive and a developer were convicted in May 2013 on federal charges of conspiring to defraud the bank before it collapsed in 2011. Woodard is serving a 23-year sentence. He didn’t admit any wrongdoing in the civil settlement.
Woodard’s lawyer, Stanley Sacks, tells The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/1ezsoNg ) that his client believes he hadn’t violated any securities laws but he didn’t want to fight the lawsuit.
