The complaint alleges that DB Structured Products breached its contractual duties by failing to properly review the mortgage loans underlying an RMBS securitization and by failing to buy back allegedly defective loans. HSBC, which alleges that over 90 percent of the underlying mortgage loans did not comply with underwriting guidelines, seeks rescissory damages or alternatively compensatory damages, and failing the award of damages, specific performance requiring the repurchase of allegedly defected loans.
