Citigroup Files New RMBS Action Against Impac

On May 25, 2011, Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. (“Citigroup”) filed a complaint against Impac Funding Corp (“Impac”) in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California alleging violations of Sections 18 and 20 of the ’34 Act and negligent misrepresentation related to Impac’s filing of a revised Pooling and Servicing Agreement (“PSA”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Citibank alleges that three weeks after it purchased approximately $7 million worth of mortgage-backed securities, Impac notified the Securities and Exchange Commission that the Pooling and Servicing Agreement (“PSA”) filed three years earlier in connection with the issuance of those securities was submitted in error. Citibank alleges that Impac filed a new PSA with the SEC including different terms that adversely impacted on the value of the certificates purchased by Citigroup. Citigroup seeks to recover the money damages that it claims to have suffered as a result. Complaint.
