Entirely expected lawsuit of the day

From Bloomberg:
MBIA Inc. was sued by Third Avenue Management LLC... over claims the insurer’s split of its bond-insurance businesses hurts debt holders.

Three mutual funds managed by Third Avenue bought notes issued by MBIA Insurance Corp. in February 2008 based on assurances that the company was recapitalizing following losses in its structured finance insurance business...

MBIA, the largest bond insurer by outstanding guarantees, said in February it was transferring $5 billion in cash and its public finance business to another entity that has no obligation to the notes, Third Avenue said in its statement.
