Are Fannie and Freddie Going to Sue Wall Street?

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 12th, 2010 3:21 PM |

Are there some dark legal clouds beginning to hover over the Wall Street landscape? How so? The threats of impending lawsuits are never a forecast any individual, entity, or industry care to entertain. Like it or not, Wall Street is beginning to get some ground cover in the forms of pending legal actions.

While a large mortgage investor, Cambridge Place Investment Management, recently filed a complaint against virtually every firm on Wall Street in the Massachusetts courts, today we see none other than our ‘wards of the state’ Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preparing the initial steps to bring suit against Wall Street. Could it be possible that Fannie and Freddie would sue Wall Street? Is a potential lawsuit political cover for Uncle Sam? Who knows? (more…)

Cambridge Place Drops Napalm on Wall Street

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 12th, 2010 7:10 AM |

To this point in our economic crisis, Wall Street and Washington have utilized the ‘perfect storm’ excuse to cover themselves from investors’ cries of negligence, incompetence, and potentially corruption. Despite those cries, America has seen few, if any, credible and comprehensive legal complaints brought on behalf of investors. Select investor suits have largely been adjudicated on behalf of the defendants, those being Wall Street banks and brokers, under the mantle that sophisticated investors are responsible for all investment analysis and live with the consequences. Will Wall Street always be accorded the cover of ‘caveat emptor’? If so, then our markets are a much riskier proposition than most investors would appreciate.

I have been surprised to this point that more investors have not filed suit against Wall Street banks for willful and wanton misrepresentation of risks in the underwriting of an array of securities. Well, I am surprised no longer as a large mortgage investor, Cambridge Place Investment Management based in Concord, MA, recently dropped a napalm bomb on Wall Street. (more…)

“Hook ’em Horns” Complaint: State of Texas v. Goldman Sachs et al

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 2nd, 2010 12:42 PM |

Is America supposed to believe that the economic crisis emanating on Wall Street and costing our economy trillions of dollars was all on the up and up and was merely a ‘perfect storm’? Although many on Wall Street and in Washington would have us believe just that, a true measure of ‘sense on cents’ dictates that we not be so naive.

Regrettably, our financial regulators and most state attorneys general have shown themselves to be incapable, unwilling, or incompetent in pursuing the massive financial transgressions and fraud that lie at the foundation of our crisis. Well, it is time for “hook ’em horns!!”

The Democratic candidate for Attorney General in the great state of Texas, Barbara Ann Radnofsky, has written a Legal Complaint and Legal Brief which form the basis for a lawsuit against Wall Street and the underlying fraud which has brought our nation to its knees. (more…)
