Goldman Sachs to Pay $41M in RMBS Securities Litigation
This is a settlement for the Securities/Stock Fraud lawsuit.
Santa Clara, CA: In resolution of yet another residential mortgage-backed (RMBS) securities lawsuit, Goldman Sachs has been ordered to pay $41 million to resolve allegations brought by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
The charges specifically allege misconduct during the bank' marketing and sale of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) prior to the 2008 economic collapse, and that Goldman Sachs failed to disclose the true risk associated with many of its RMBS investments.
According to the terms of the settlement, GS will pay $25 million to the Illinois' pension system and $16 million will be given in relief to Illinois consumers.
This settlement is part of a larger, $5 billion national settlement resulting from legal action taken by the US Department of Justice and state attorneys general and other entities.
