United States District Judge Andre M. Davis dismissed all remaining civil charges Tuesday against Charles Bryceland, a former Bank of America executive, on mutual fund timing and late trading. Although the SEC, NASD and the New York Attorney General have never charged Bryceland, he was named and then dropped as a defendant in a number of earlier cases.

Although it was widely reported that Bryceland and BoA mutual fund chief Robert Gordon were fired for their involvement in the illegal trades, Bryceland's attorney said Tuesday that he resigned for reasons unrelated to the scandal and, in fact, had tendered his resignation a full eight months before the case broke.
