On January 28, Judge Denise Cote of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York denied Goldman Sachs’s motion to compel arbitration for RMBS claims brought by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). NCUA brought the claims as the liquidating agent of the Southwest Corporate Federal Credit Union. Goldman sought to compel arbitration under an agreement between Southwest and Goldman Sachs from 1992. The court held that NCUA has the power to repudiate contracts of a credit union in liquidation under the terms of its enabling legislation, and exercised that authority here. NCUA’s claims under Sections 11 and 12 of the Securities Act of 1933 and under the Texas Securities Act will proceed in federal district court. Order.
