Sealink alleges that Deutsche Bank misrepresented the originators’ compliance with underwriting guidelines, the validity of appraised values of the underlying mortgage loans and the LTV ratios based on those values, that all necessary steps had been taken to convey good title to the underlying mortgage loans into the securitization trust, and that the credit ratings assigned to the certificates accurately reflected their credit risk, among other things. Sealink’s causes of action include fraud, fraudulent inducement, and aiding and abetting fraud. Sealink seeks compensatory, rescissory, and punitive damages, in addition to costs and fees. Complaint.
