The complaint alleges that the defendants misrepresented the quality of the mortgage loans underlying the RMBS and the quality of the due diligence performed in connection with the origination of those loans. Syncora claims it has paid out over $94 million to insured investors on a transaction that experienced cumulative losses of over $111 million. Syncora seeks compensatory and punitive damages, reimbursement, and attorneys fees and costs.  Complaint.
