National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz hailed Wednesday’s federal court ruling denying a bid by Wall Street banks to dismiss NCUA’s suits regarding corporate credit union investments and said the agency is determined to see the cases through.
“NCUA is pleased that the court recognized the central merits of our complaints and allowed the cases to move forward. The Wall Street firms that created and sold these securities materially misrepresented the inherent level of risks to investors,” Matz said. “We will continue to vigorously pursue these lawsuits, and the others previously filed. As liquidating agent for U.S. Central, NCUA has a duty to maximize recoveries from responsible parties in order to limit losses to the federally insured credit union system.”
