David Bartram, Chief Operating Officer and SBA Division Manager commented, “We launched the SBA division in late 2009 with the intent of providing loans to small business owners to purchase, build, or refinance real estate for their businesses. Since that time, we have been successful at growing our operation from a small office in San Diego to offices throughout the Western United States, and just surpassed $500 million in loans funded.”

Small Business Capital’s Mark Feathers is appealing the federal court’s summary judgment against his company by the SEC

Read his one-page appeal brief here.

Writes Feathers, “Prior to this lawsuit, the defendants were in good standing with all of their state and federal regulatory agencies. This was a surprise injunction and receivership placed onto the defendants in June of 2012. As will be demonstrated herein, this appeal will demonstrate that this lawsuit was rigged from the beginning by SEC’s causing of an unconstitutional seizure of the defendant’s assets, which was allowed or assisted in part or in whole by the bias caused by SEC’s employment of the word “Ponzi” and its affects thereafter, and by SEC’s knowing employment of false and fraudulent financial illustrations in its complaint.”
