FDIC Suit Revival by Appeals Court Riles Defendant Banks
Deutche Bank and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) have requested the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a recent ruling that effectively revived a suit brought by the Federal Depositors Insurance Corp.’s (FDIC) alleging securities fraud associated with the sale of approximately $2.1 billion worth of residential mortgage-backed securities. The banks argue the appeals court ruling defied the U.S. Supreme Court.
The banks claim the Fifth Circuit’s holding…that a Texas district court judge disregarded an FDIC statute preempting all state limitations periods….when it dismissed the consolidated suit accusing Deutche Bank, RBS as well as Goldman Sachs & Co. of fraudulently underwriting and marketing residential mortgage backed securities. The banks counsel argued the courts holding relied on issues that were already roundly rejected by the Supreme Court.
