In the Matter of

and as an institution-affiliated
party of
COMMUNITY BANK
GRANBURY, TEXAS
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
and
COMMUNITY BANK
ROCKWALL, TEXAS
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER OF PROHIBITION
FROM FURTHER
PARTICIPATION

   James M. Meyer ("Respondent") having been advised of his right to a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("NOTICE") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") detailing the violations of law or regulation and/or unsafe or unsound banking practices alleged to have been engaged in by the Respondent individually and as an institution-affiliated party of Community Bank, Granbury, Texas, and Community Bank, Rockwall, Texas (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Banks"), which have resulted, or will probably result in, financial loss or other damage to the Banks and/or prejudice to the interests of depositors; and which demonstrate Respondent's willful or continuing disregard for the safety and soundness of the Banks; and having been further advised of his right to a hearing on the alleged charges under section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e), and Part 308 of the FDIC Rules of Practice and Procedure, 56 Fed. Reg. 37,968 (1991) (to be codified at 12 C.F.R. Part 308), and having waived those rights, Respondent entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with a representative of the Legal Division of the FDIC, dated November 1, 1991, whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any violations of law or regulation and/or any unsafe or unsound banking practices. Respondent consented to the issuance of an ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("ORDER") by the FDIC.
   The FDIC considered the matter and determined it had reason to believe that:

       (i) Respondent had engaged or participated in violations of law or regulation and/or unsafe or unsound banking practices;
       (ii) By reason of such violations and/or practices, the Banks have suffered or will probably suffer financial loss or other damage and/or the interests of the Banks' depositors have been or could be prejudiced; and
       (iii) Such violations and/or practices demonstrate Respondent's willful or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Banks. The FDIC further determined the violations and/or practices evidence Respondent's unfitness to serve as an officer, director and/or institution-affiliated party of the Banks, or any insured depository institution or agency or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A). The FDIC, {{5-31-92 p.C-2027}}therefore, accepts the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issues the following:
