17-cv-00497-0024
17-cv-00497-0025

New filing in the Jacobs and Hindes case.
Peter Chapman writes, "Messrs. Jacobs and Hindes asked Judge Sleet this morning to take judicial notice of a variety of documents that have come to light during jurisdictional discovery in Fairholme v. U.S. that undercut FHFA and Treasury's central arguments in defense of the Net Worth Sweep. Because the attachments are large, today's filing is posted at http://bankrupt.com/misc/15-00708-0075.pdf."
New filing in the Collins case, click here to view.
Peter Chapman writes, "Treasury delivered its brief to the Fifth Circuit today saying, in short, it doesn't understand why the Collins Plaintiffs are so agitated. HERA allows the government to do whatever it wants. GSE shareholders have no statutory right to sue. FHFA and Treasury did what they thought was best at the time. Judge Atlas said everything was okay. How could there be anything for the Fifth Circuit to review?."
Additional filings in the Collins case, click here to view.
Peter Chapman writes, "FHFA delivered its brief to the Fifth Circuit this evening arguing that shareholder litigation is barred by HERA, FHFA stands in all shareholders shoes, and there's no constitutional problem with FHFA. A copy of FHFA's brief is (linked above), and a handful of large documents FHFA wants to make sure the Fifth Circuit sees are posted at http://bankrupt.com//misc/17-20364-00514149152.pdf."
New filings in the Rop case.
Motion to Dismiss
Memorandum
Peter Chapman writes, "Treasury delivered it's motion to dismiss and a memorandum in support to the District Court today. Treasury argues, among other things, that the Rop Plaintiffs should have asserted their constitutional claims in the Perry or Saxton proceedings, and since they didn't, those claims are now improper."
