On September 27, 2007 the Ontario Securities Commission alleged that Mr. Rooney and IDC traded in securities of IDC without registration. Mr. Rooney and IDC have opposed the allegation. After a hearing, a decision has not yet been rendered by the OSC. In 1987, Mr. Rooney was charged by the United States with tax evasion and signing a false tax return for taxes due for the taxable year 1983. At trial Mr. Rooney was acquitted of tax evasion and convicted of signing a false tax return. The amount of tax unpaid as calculated on his 1983 tax return charged in the offence was $9,000. Mr. Rooney paid taxes in excess of $800,000 in 1983 and it was demonstrated at trial that Mr. Rooney in fact overpaid his 1983 taxes therefore an acquittal for tax evasion resulted. In 2001, Mr. Rooney settled a civil case with the Securities and Exchange Commission on alleged insider trading, without denying or admitting wrongdoing and agreed not to conduct activities paramount to operating as a broker/dealer.
