Cheyne Pain

Ah, the lawyers may be slow, but they are remorseless. Like the slugs in my friend's garden, there is little you can do to stop them. From the FT:
Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank’s class action lawsuit for fraud, negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment over its investment in a complex fund is a fascinating collection of details and allegations that cut to the heart of the credit boom and messy aftermath...
ADCB bought mezz notes paying Libor plus 150 and rated single A: these are now worth squat. Back to the FT:
ADCB’s suit accuses Morgan Stanley, Bank of New York Mellon, Moody’s Investors Service and Standard & Poor’s of misleading investors about the quality of assets the Cheyne vehicle bought and held from its inception in 2005 to its collapse just two years later.
This will be dramatic, even if it is the slow moving drama of a test match. I look forward to the show.
