I think that even if there weren't specific laws against misleading investors, then they would probably be violating some consumer fraud laws.

I totally agree that they should be hung out to dry. A person should be able to trust that any professional advisor (lawyer, accountant, financial planner, whatever) is going to give honest advice. Now if they gave honest advice and it was wrong, well, that happens but was apparently not the case here.
