Dexia alleges that the defendants created, issued, and sold RMBS based on loans that the defendants knew to be of poor quality, made false and misleading representations about those loans to investors, and exerted undue pressure on credit rating agencies. Dexia asserts claims for negligent misrepresentation, aiding and abetting fraud, and fraudulent inducement, and seeks rescission and damages. Complaint.
