New York Court of Appeals

Amicus Issue:

Whether New York’s six-year statute of limitations period for breach of contract cases involving allegedly misleading offering agreements for the sale of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) begins to run on the transaction’s closing date, as the banks assert, or whether it begins to run only after the bank refuses to repurchase the loans, as the plaintiff investors assert.

Counsel of Record:

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Theodore N. Mirvis
George T. Conway III
