Assured’s allegations concern two securitizations, one issued in 2004 and one in 2008, with respect to which Assured has thus far paid out $55.7 million in claims. Assured alleges that the defendants violated their own underwriting standards and contractual loan-level repurchase obligations. Assured asserts causes of action for breach of contract, indemnification, and reimbursement, and seeks compensatory damages. Complaint.
