Washington, D.C. – Dennis Kelleher, President and CEO of Better Markets, issued this statement on the ruling from Judge Rosemary Collyer granting Better Markets the right to intervene but denying its request for the court to review and unseal the record in the MetLife v. Financial Stability Oversight Council lawsuit:
“We are gratified that the court granted our Motion to Intervene, but respectfully disagree with the Court’s view that the Dodd Frank Act requires more than two-thirds of this record to be kept secret from the American people. Future financial crashes and more taxpayer bailouts are at stake in this important case. We will continue to take all appropriate steps to bring maximum transparency to this case.”
