 On November 26, CIFG sued JP Morgan in Supreme Court for the State of New York for alleged losses stemming from its insurance of credit default swaps on two Bear Stearns RMBS-backed CDOs. CIFG alleges that instead of being selected and managed by independent collateral managers, the CDO portfolios were actually selected by Bear Stearns in order to unload its own risk. CIFG alleges it suffered more than $100 million in losses when the two CDOs defaulted. The complaint’s causes of action are for material misrepresentation in the inducement of an insurance contract and fraud. Complaint.
