-- On Wednesday, November 26, 2012, 281st State District Court Judge Sylvia Matthews entered a judgment in the amount of $65,884,838.70 against First National Bank of Edinburg and the Merensky Reef Hospital Corporation (Cause #2010-41034) in favor of six investors that were defrauded by the financial institution and healthcare management company.
Judge Matthew's decision follows the conclusion of a five-week jury trial that culminated in a unanimous verdict against First National Bank Edinburg, Merensky Reef Hospital Corporation and Conroe area attorney Eric Yollick wherein the jury found these Defendants committed fraud when they wrongfully conspired to take possession of three hospitals purchased by the investor Plaintiffs.

Zona Jones of Provost Umphrey Law Firm LLP in Beaumont, TX; and
