Alison Frankel: How BofA could lose big if it wins MBIA regulatory challenge

Alison Frankel: How BofA could lose big if it wins MBIA regulatory challenge


Alison Frankel’s On The Case-

I’ve spent a lot of time talking about what I consider Bank of America’s risky gamesmanship in its multi-pronged litigation with the bond insurer MBIA, but it may be that I’ve underestimated that risk by focusing on the downside for the bank in MBIA’s breach of contract and fraud suit. Under a not-implausible scenario, BofA faces serious risk in its regulatory challenge to MBIA’s transformation that’s going to trial on May 14. And ironically, the risk comes not from losing the case — but from winning it.

According to a sophisticated and well-advised MBIA institutional investor that has devoted serious resources to analyzing the issue — trust me, even though the investor doesn’t want to broadcast its involvement, this is a seriously savvy player — if Bank of America and two French banks succeed in overturning MBIA’s 2009 split into separate muni bond and structured finance businesses, there’s a reasonable likelihood that BofA could wind up at the back of the line of MBIA claimants, waiting years for whatever scraps are left over from payouts to municipal bond insurance policyholders.

Here’s why. For all sorts of reasons…

Alison Frankel: NY AG’s curious new bid to intervene in $8.5 bl BofA MBS deal

Alison Frankel: NY AG’s curious new bid to intervene in $8.5 bl BofA MBS deal


Reuters Legal-

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman still wants a say in whether Bank of America’s proposed $8.5 billion settlement with Countrywide mortgage-backed securities investors should be approved by a state-court judge. The AG’s new intervention motion, filed more than seven months after Schneiderman first moved to join the case, makes the exact same arguments as the old motion, which was pending before New York State Supreme Court Justice Barbara Kapnick when the settlement was removed from state court to Manhattan federal court last August. There’s just one notable exception: The AG’s office “deleted” its explosive fraud counterclaims against Countrywide MBS trustee Bank of New York Mellon. Is playing nice (or, at least, nicer) enough to win the AG a seat at the table?

Those fraud counterclaims, as you’ll surely recall, caused quite a stir when Schneiderman’s office tacked them onto its original motion to intervene. One Manhattan business development official questioned the wisdom of attacking a trustee that was at least making an effort to respond to investors’ concerns and warned that the AG was endangering the city’s standing as the preferred home of financial institutions. BNY Mellon and the institutional investors backing the proposed $8.5 billion settlement responded in kind to the AG’s intervention motion, asserting that Scheiderman didn’t have standing to intervene because he’s not a Countrywide MBS investor.

NY pushes objection to BofA $8.5 billion mortgage pact

NY pushes objection to BofA $8.5 billion mortgage pact


Reuters-

Bank of America Corp’s proposed $8.5 billion mortgage bond settlement received fresh opposition on Tuesday from New York’s attorney general, who said the accord appears unfair to investors who may deserve to recover more.

Eric Schneiderman, the attorney general, filed papers on Tuesday asking a New York State Supreme Court justice for permission to intervene.

He had made the same request last August before the case moved to federal court. It returned to the state court in February.

The settlement announced last June arose from Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America’s 2008 purchase of Countrywide Financial Corp, once the nation’s largest mortgage lender.

LETTER: MBIA tells judge of newly uncovered Countrywide fraud “FACTS” database

LETTER: MBIA tells judge of newly uncovered Countrywide fraud “FACTS” database


Alison Frankel-

I sure hope the Securities and Exchange Commission and other members of the new joint mortgage-backed securities task force are paying attention to the docket in MBIA’s New York State Supreme Court fraud and breach-of-contract suit against Countrywide. On Wednesday, MBIA’s lawyers at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan sent a letter to Justice Eileen Bransten requesting that she order Countrywide to produce discovery on an internal fraud-tracking database “which MBIA had not previously known to exist.” MBIA said it needs the discovery to prepare for upcoming depositions of former Countrywide employees who tried to expose its allegedly fraudulent mortgage underwriting practices, including the well-known whistleblowers Eileen Foster and Mari Eisenman.

ANOTHER INVESTIGATION into DJSP ENTERPRISES UNLEASHED!!

ANOTHER INVESTIGATION into DJSP ENTERPRISES UNLEASHED!!


press release

July 28, 2010, 6:55 p.m. EDT ·

The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC and Cash Powers Taylor, LLP Announce the Investigation of Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duties Against the Officers and Directors of DJSP Enterprises, Inc.

DALLAS, Jul 28, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, founded by a former state prosecutor and enforcement attorney for the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and the law firm of Cash Powers Taylor, LLP are investigating potential legal claims available to purchasers of DJSP Enterprises, Inc. (“DJSP” or “Company”) (DJSP 3.95, +0.07, +1.85%) during the period of March 16, 2010 and May 27, 2010.

DJSP and certain of its officers and directors allegedly violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing materially false and misleading statements and failing to disclose certain facts known to them regarding the Company’s business and financial results. Specifically, on March 11, 2010, the Company issued statements assuring investors that it would continue to profit and earn revenue as usual, despite the Obama Administration’s efforts to curb real estate foreclosures. Additionally, the Company stated that DJSP would continue to be profitable in subsequent years and that its business would not be affected by the government’s involvement in the mortgage markets. However, in April 2010, when the Company’s largest clients began real estate foreclosure conversion systems, DJSP revenue from mortgage foreclosure began to substantially decline. As a result of defendants’ false statements, DJSP’s stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.

If you currently own or purchased DJSP shares and would like additional information regarding this investigation or if you have information regarding the allegations against the company, please contact Patrick Powers at Cash Powers Taylor, LLP, toll free (877) 728-9607, via e-mail at patrick@cptlawfirm.com, or The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC toll free (877) 397-5991, or via email at WBriscoe@TheBriscoeLawFirm.com.
