An investment banker and a St. Louis law firm are settling for up to $8.25 million in a lawsuit over bonding for a failed Missouri sweetener factory.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports a settlement deal filed earlier this week will give investors back more than 80 percent of losses on the plant that never was built.

A federal judge has ruled that the city of Moberly, Mo., and its industrial development authority are not responsible for bonds involved in a failed artificial sweetener plant project.

A new lawsuit is seeking $30 million from an investment banking firm and 10 employees because of a failed factory project in central Missouri.

Morgan Keegan, which has merged with Raymond James Financial Inc., was the underwriter in 2010 for a $39 million bond issue for a failed artificial sweetener factory for Mamtek US Inc. in Moberly. Construction on the factory stopped in August 2011 when Mamtek failed to make a required bond payment.
