SEC Files Another Suit Against Another EB-5 Attorney for Misuse of Funds

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed yet another suit against yet another EB-5 lawyer, contending that the Chicago lawyer in the case, Seyed Taher Kameli, "improperly commingled and otherwise improperly used portions of the $88.7 million investment ... and has spent a significant portion of the investment proceeds for his own benefit."

Big H-1B Employer Infosys Sued Again for Racial Discrimination
