The Discipline Committee Panel of the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS), acting in accordance with the CAS bylaws and applicable policies and procedures, and with consideration of the findings from the Actuarial Board for Counseling and Discipline (ABCD), voted unanimously to expel Koosh Arfa-Zanganeh from membership in the CAS for materially and willfully violating Precepts 1 and 14 of the Code of Professional Conduct (Code). The Appeal Panel of the CAS Board of Directors affirmed this decision in accordance with the CAS bylaws and applicable policies and procedures.
The Discipline Panel found that Arfa-Zanganeh materially violated Precept 1 of the Code by sending numerous inappropriate email transmissions of a harassing nature to ABCD members, American Academy of Actuaries staff, committee members and officers, Casualty Actuarial Society committee members and officers, and former employers.
In addition, the Discipline Committee Panel found that Arfa-Zanganeh materially and willfully violated Precepts 1 and 14 of the Code as he failed to respond promptly, truthfully, and fully to communications made on behalf of the ABCD in connection with its inquiries into complaints filed against him by former employers. The Panel also found that he had repeatedly misrepresented his whereabouts and availability in connection with the investigations.
