Better Markets Brief in Perry Capital v. Jacob J. Lew

Better Markets announced today that it has filed a motion in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit seeking leave to submit an amicus brief supporting the government’s position inPerry Capital v. Jacob J. Lew. Although the government bailed out mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the 2008 financial crisis and rescued them from certain bankruptcy, some shareholders are now trying to roll back these measures and put taxpayers back on the hook for their losses while they pocket the profits. The Better Markets brief makes clear that their claims are meritless.
