A Washington-area executive accused in a lawsuitof bilking millions of dollars from a charity founded more than 200 years ago by Dolley Madison is facing a lifetime ban from the securities industry.
When negotiating with the Hillcrest Children's Center to handle millions of dollars from the District-based nonprofit group's endowment, executives at Gibraltar Asset Management Group held themselves out to be responsible investment managers whose advisers included top faculty at Howard University, according to court records.
He said he had no involvement with Mr. Taylor's company or its dealings with the Hillcrest Children's Center.
Mr. Sirjue previously told The Times he was asked to be an adviser for a minority startup business but had terminated the relationship in 2009.
