On Monday, Judge Margaret Sweeney in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims unsealed seven documents (obtained through discovery in Fairholme Funds, Inc., et. al. v. United States, Case No. 13-465C) that shed light on the unlawful actions of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (“FHFA”) and the United States Treasury (“Treasury”) in expropriating the assets of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Collectively, these documents provide clear and convincing evidence that FHFA and Treasury brazenly violated the law when they decided to seize all of the capital from Fannie and Freddie.

Bruce R. Berkowitz, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Fairholme Capital Management, stated: “The release of these seven documents is just the tip of the iceberg. The American people deserve to see the tens of thousands of documents hidden for no good reason by the defendants. We expect to see them – and as these documents demonstrate, they will prove our case.”
