Law360, New York (March 27, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT) -- A New York federal judge on Wednesday rejected Deutsche Bank AG’s effort to dismiss a shareholder class action alleging it touted risky mortgage-backed securities to investors even as top bank executives authorized a star trader to make a $1 billion bet against the notes.
“Plaintiffs have certainly set forth sufficient plausible allegations to support a claim for a fraudulent scheme against Deutsche Bank,” U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest said in her order. “The scheme is laid out with specificity.”
