In the Matter of
METO MITEFF, individually, and
as a director and/or person
participating in the affairs of
and as an institution-affiliated party of
TARRANT BANK
FORT WORTH, TEXAS
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPA
FDIC-91-221e

   Miteff ("Respondent"), having received a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("NOTICE") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") detailing the unsafe and unsound banking practices, for which an ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("ORDER") may issue, and having been further advised of the right to a hearing on the alleged charges under section 8(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), as enacted in both 1982 and 1989, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e) (1982) and 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e) (1989), and Part 308 of the FDIC's 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, the 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, whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any unsafe or unsound banking practices, Respondent consented to the issuance of an ORDER by the FDIC. The FDIC considered the matter and determined it had reason to believe that:
   (a) The Respondent has engaged or participated in unsafe or unsound banking practices, as a director and/or person participating in the affairs of and as an institution-affiliated party of Tarrant Bank, Fort Worth, Texas (the "Bank");
   (b) By reason of such practices, the Bank has suffered or will probably suffer financial loss or other damage and/or the interests of the Bank's depositors have been or could be prejudiced; and
   (c) Such practices demonstrate the Respondent's willful and/or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Bank.
   The FDIC further determined that such practices demonstrate the Respondent's unfitness to serve as a director, officer, person participating in the conduct of the affairs of or as an institution-affiliated party of the Bank, any other insured depository institution, or any other agency or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A).
   The FDIC, therefore, accepted the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issued the following:

ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION

   [.1] 1. Meto Miteff is hereby prohibited, without the prior written approval of the FDIC and the appropriate Federal financial {{7-31-92 p.C-2229}} institutions regulatory agency, as that term is defined in section 8(e)(7)(D) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(D), from:
   (a) participating in any manner in the conduct of the affairs of any financial institution or organization enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A);

   [.2] (b) soliciting, procuring, transferring, attempting to transfer, voting, or attempting to vote any proxy, consent or authorization with respect to any voting rights in any financial institution enumerated in section 8(e)(7)(A) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(e)(7)(A);

   2. This ORDER will become effective ten (10) days after its issuance. The provisions of this ORDER will remain effective and enforceable except to the extent that, and until such time as, any provision of this ORDER shall have been modified, terminated, suspended, or set aside by the FDIC.
