Bartlesville businesswoman Marya Gray has been removed as a defendant from the original lawsuit filed in the on-going investigation of locally-based Focus Group Advisors and its former investment agent, Larry Dearman.
Filed Nov. 16 by retired school administrator Jerry Quillin, the case represents the first of six similar actions that have named The Focus Group, its officers (including Dearman) and several of their business associates.
Gray called Dearman a longtime friend who was formerly employed by Bartnet.
The Focus Group lawsuits, as well as a related investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, involve investments and loans brokered by Dearman between 2009 and last August, when he was dismissed as the firm's senior investment advisor.
Several of the cases, including the original, claim that Individual Retirement Accounts were converted into unsecured business loans without the knowldege of the investor/client.
After Dearman left The Focus Group, the company reportedly notified affected clients regarding "inappropriate private financial transactions" and "a breach of integrity" by one of its former advisors. In December, Focus Group made a cross-claim against Dearman as part of the Quillin suit and at least one of the other cases.
The court ordered a journal entry of judgment for Quillin on Jan. 7 after Dearman failed to appear for a scheduled court session in the case.
In late December, however, Dearman provided testimony related to the first lawsuit in a deposition given at Tulsa.

In addition to being the senior advisor of an area investment counseling firm, Larry Joe Dearman was a popular wedding singer, according to a complaint by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Fourteen months after financial schemes allegedly orchestrated by the pair started to unravel, Dearman and Gray were charged in Washington County District Court with multiple counts of felony embezzlement and criminal conspiracy.
Dearman, 40, is charged with four counts of embezzlement and seven counts each for conspiracy and obtaining money by false pretense from the same seven investors.
Allegations claim that Dearman and Gray conspired to fraudulently appropriate a total of $836,000 from the seven investors - who are listed as witnesses in the cases.
Investor/victims in the criminal cases include six area investors and Denise Rosselot, a Florida woman who became acquainted with Dearman through an acquaintance in Bartlesville.
During that time, Dearman served as senior investment advisor for The Focus Group, a Bartlesville-based consulting firm.
If convicted on the latest charges, Dearman would be liable for fines of up to $110,000 and/or as much as 180 years imprisonment, according to court documents.
The SEC accused Dearman and Gray of raising at least $4.7 million through various fraudulent and illegal transactions, claiming the embezzled money was spent on their personal uses and to pay off other investors in a Ponzi-type scheme.
