Mr. Richard and Mr. Graeler will share insights on the trial, from preparation, to cross examination, and closing arguments.
About the Case
The lawsuit, which was filed in 2010, sought to recover damages from three former officers of IndyMac's Homebuilder Division, alleging that the executives were negligent and breached their fiduciary duties by approving homebuilder loans with questionable repayment sources in violation of bank policies, and issuing them to borrowers who were not creditworthy or were in financial distress. During the 17-day jury trial, Nossaman successfully presented the essential details of 23 separate, complicated multimillion dollar development loans and persuaded the jury that the approval of those loans fell below the standard of care for safe and sound banking.
