Recent Trends in Mortgage Backed Securities Litigation: Investor Claims & Defenses
Tuesday, Apr 16 2013

Mortgage-backed securities have played a prominent role in the wave of financial litigation. Claims have raised a complex web of legal questions. This program will explore these claims and analyze the recent trends in some of the most high profile cases to date. The program will discuss the various strategies being used by participants in MBS transactions- trustees, mortgage servicers and credit rating agencies- to address the multitude of claims that have been asserted against them. The program will also consider the ways in which certain settlements have shaped how these cases are being litigated and pursued. Issues to be explored include: an explanation of the typical structure of an RMBS transaction; more advanced concepts in put-back and monoline litigations such as statistical sampling as a method for proving defaults; issues related to claims stemming from violations of federal and state securities laws; statute of limitations issues; loss-causation standards and recent settlements in the MBS space
