Freddie Settles with Bankruptcy Estate of Lehman Brothers

Some five and a half years after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, the remains of Lehman Brothers settled the legal claim by Freddie Mac stemming from $1.2 billion in loans made by the GSE to the investment bank just before the financial collapse. Judge Shelley Chapman of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan approved this week the settlement that would see Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. pays $767 million to the GSE to close out Freddie’s bid to collect on the unpaid loan.

Poll

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.
2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.
Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.
Not in my lifetime.
