N.H. AG gets injunction
CONCORD, N.H. (Legal Newsline) - A Belmont man has been enjoined from selling securities following an injunction subsequent to a joint petition by New Hampshire Attorney General Michael Delaney and Secretary of State William Gardner.
The injunction, issued by Superior Court Justice Steven Houran, also freezes certain assets of Eugene Morrissette, including bank accounts and personal property.
Morrissettee, doing business as GM Enterprises, is alleged to have operated various multi-level marketing programs in violation of New Hampshire securities law.

An investigation into the scope of Morrissette's activities by Delaney and the Secretary of State, Bureau of Securities Regulation is ongoing.
