CUNA appreciates NCUA’s continued pursuit of recoveries in mortgage securities

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 17, 2014) – National Credit Union Administration Board has filed a lawsuit against U.S. Bank and Bank of America over mortgage securities sold to corporate credit unions (NCUA is suing in its capacity as trustees of the mortgage pools that backed the securities). Those securities lost value, contributing to the failure of all five corporates, according to NCUA. Eric Richard, CUNA General Counsel, issued the following statement:

“We appreciate NCUA’s continued pursuit of recoveries in court on the assets of the conserved corporates.  Any recovered funds should be credited to the estates of the failed corporates.  We hope to someday see a return of capital to the credit unions that had capitalized the corporates.”
