Subject:  My order was executed after it expired Date:  5/25/2012  10:06 AM

Last Friday I placed a limit order to buy FB.

After the market closed, I logged on and saw a notice saying my order had expired unexecuted.

Yesterday (Thursday) I got an email from Scottrade with the subject, "Trade Confirmations Available Online."

At first I thought it was a phishing attempt, since I hadn't placed any trades since last Friday, and that one expired without being executed.

I just got off the phone with Scottrade, and they're now claiming that they didn't receive confirmation of the trade (from Nasdaq) until Wednesday.

Do I have any legal recourse against Scottrade or Nasdaq?

I can't help but wonder what would have happened if I'd spent that cash on another stock, or withdrawn it from my account.
