Institutional Investors Question AIG’s Motion to Intervene in Proposed BofA Settlement

On August 15, 2011, the institutional investors that negotiated the proposed $8.5 billion settlement with Bank of America regarding representations and warranties claims against Countrywide Financial Corp. filed a response to AIG’s motion to intervene and oppose the settlement. The institutional investors did not object to AIG’s intervention, but urged the court to carefully scrutinize AIG’s objection, pointing to AIG’s failure to disclose a simultaneously filed individual securities lawsuit against BofA as evidence that AIG is improperly attempting to advance its own interests ahead of those of other certificate holders.
