A Legal Scholar Comments on Judge Sweeney’s Favorable Ruling

Professor Epstein posits: “My guess is that the information contained in these documents would influence greatly the analysis of the key underlying issues common to the cases: whether the Federal Housing Finance Agency and the Department of Treasury were in breach of their fiduciary duties in concocting the NWS.”
Kind regards,
