Defending the broker-dealer against retirees’ misrepresentation and unsuitability charges

SummaryThe case was filed by retirees who alleged they had been misled about the risk of investing in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock. Preferred shareholders of Fannie and Freddie were nearly wiped out when both entities were placed into conservatorship by government regulators in September 2008 at the height of the mortgage crisis. The retirees, who were represented by one of the foremost public investor law firms in the country, had originally sought damages of six figures for alleged misrepresentation and unsuitability.
