As noted by FINRA previously - these expungements were granted based on requests and do NOT include all cases. In fact these requests represent less than 5% of complaints filed.

Our Congress and the SEC have bigger fish to fry than to prevent the appropriate expungement of frivilous cases from the records of righteous industry professionals.
