The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (Commission) today announced that it had submitted to the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey for filing a proposed settled Final Judgment as to Defendant Anne M. Pember and Relief Defendant Carleton H. Pember IV, in the Commission's previously filed civil injunctive action against Anne M. Pember (Pember) and others, Securities and Exchange Commission v. Cosmo Corigliano, Anne M. Pember, Casper Sabatino, and Kevin T. Kearney, Defendants, and Agnes T. Corigliano, Carleton H. Pember IV, and Mary Louise Scully, Relief Defendants, Civil Action No. 00-2873 (D.N.J). The Commission filed its injunctive action on June 14, 2000. The Commission's complaint in that action alleged that for several years the management of CUC International Inc. (CUC) operated a fraudulent scheme that added hundreds of millions of dollars to the reported operating income of CUC and, subsequently, of its corporate successor, Cendant Corporation (Cendant). On July 25, 2000, the Commission amended its complaint and, among other things, named Pember's spouse, Carleton H. Pember IV, as a relief defendant.
