Grimes, who was fired in part because of a federal and state cease-and-desist order involving its residential construction loan program.Coast Bank, a subsidiary, recently agreed to the entry of the C&D order from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Florida Office of Financial Regulation relating to the bank's residential construction-to-permanent loan portfolio.
