RESOURCE BANK
MANDEVILLE, LOUISIANA
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION

FDIC-02-122e

BRUCE F. CUCCHIARA ("Respondent") has received a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO PROHIBIT FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("NOTICE") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") on April 8, 2005, detailing the violations of law, unsafe or unsound banking practices, and/or breaches of fiduciary duty for which an ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("ORDER") may issue. On April 28, 2005, Respondent filed an answer to the Notice.

Respondent and Enforcement Counsel for the FDIC thereafter executed a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER OF PROHIBITION FROM FURTHER PARTICIPATION ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any violations, unsafe or unsound banking practices, and/or breaches of fiduciary duty, Respondent waived his right to a hearing on the Notice and consented to the issuance of an ORDER by the FDIC.

The FDIC considered the matter and determined it had reason to believe that:

    (a) As an institution-affiliated party of Resource Bank, Mandeville, Louisiana ("Bank"), Respondent violated law and regulations, engaged or participated in unsafe or unsound banking practices, and/or breached his fiduciary duty to the Bank;

    (b) By reason of such violations, practices, and/or breaches of fiduciary duty,


{{09-30-05 p.12427.1}}

    the Respondent was likely to cause more than a minimal loss to the Bank and/or Respondent received financial gain or other benefit; and

    (c) Such violations, practices, and/or breaches of fiduciary duty involve personal dishonesty on the part of the Respondent or demonstrate the Respondent's willful and/or continuing disregard for the safety or soundness of the Bank.

The FDIC further determined that such violations, practices, and/or breaches of fiduciary duty demonstrate the Respondent's unfitness to serve as a director, officer, person participating in the conduct of the affairs, 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. BRUCE F. CUCCHIARA is hereby, without the prior written approval of the FDIC and the appropriate Federal financial 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), prohibited from:

[.1] (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);

(c) violating any voting agreement previously approved by the appropriate Federal banking agency; or

(d) voting for a director, or serving or acting as an institution-affiliated party.

2. This ORDER will become effective upon its issuance by the FDIC. 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.

Pursuant to delegated authority.

Dated this 8th day of July, 2005.
