Merrill Lynch is back on the Hook for the Illinois Funeral Scam. That would be the Illinois Funeral Directors Association(IFDA)  Preneed Trust Scandal. The 18 million dollar payment agreement  regulators took in return for no further investigations has been thrown out by  a  Cook County Judge.

A Cook County judge has ruled that state regulators overstepped their authority last spring when they extracted $18 million from Merrill Lynch to settle allegations that the financial giant violated state law in its dealings with the Illinois Funeral Directors Association.
