On June 18, trustee HSBC filed suit on behalf of ACE Securities Corp. Home Equity Loan Trust Series 2006-SL2 against DB Structured Products, Inc., a Deutsche Bank Subsidiary, in New York state court. The complaint attempts to revive claims previously dismissed by New York’s First Department intermediate appellate court. In its December 2013 decision, the First Department held that the Trustee’s claims were untimely and that the certificate holder-plaintiffs who initially had brought the claims lacked standing to sue. Plaintiff asserts that the new complaint is properly brought under a procedure that permits refiling a suit within six months after dismissal on certain grounds, alleging that it has cured the deficiencies previously identified by the First Department. In the new action, the plaintiff again alleges that DB Structured Products breached contractual representations and warranties related to mortgage loans underlying the securitization at issue.
