On April 5, New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich dismissed with prejudice a suit brought by six Loreley Financing entities against various UBS entities. Loreley alleged fraud stemming from UBS’s issuance of $331 million of CDOs, in which Loreley was an investor, that were comprised of RMBS and credit default swaps. Loreley brought claims for common law fraud, conspiracy to defraud, aiding and abetting fraud, rescission, fraudulent conveyance and unjust enrichment. Justice Kornreich held the allegations in the Complaint failed to show how UBS caused the CDOs to fail and therefore failed to state a claim, including for fraud. Decision.
