On July 25, Judge Richard D. Rogers of the United States District Court for the District of Kansas denied defendants’ motion to dismiss the National Credit Union Administration Board’s suits against RBS Securities and Wachovia Capital Markets. The two consolidated actions allege violations of Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the federal Securities Act of 1933, as well as violations of the Kansas Uniform Securities Act, in connection with the sale of residential mortgage-backed securities. The court concluded that plaintiffs’ claims were not barred by the applicable statutes of limitations or repose. The court also denied in large part defendants’ motion to the extent that it was based on failure to state a claim, but granted defendants’ motion to dismiss as to plaintiffs’ allegations of systematic disregard of underwriting guidelines as to certain certificates for which plaintiffs failed to identify specific originators or underwriting practices, as well as plaintiffs’ allegations that defendants had misrepresented the benefits of the credit enhancement associated with the certificates at issue. Decision.
