Nomura Seeks SCOTUS Review of Fine to FHFA, SIFMA Supports
April 27, 2018
After losing an appeal against the Federal Housing Finance Agency last year, Nomura Securities has asked the Supreme Court of the United States to hear its case and help overturn an $800 million penalty it owes the FHFA in a settlement. And the Structured Industry Finance Markets Association is helping in that effort. Nomura hopes the high court can determine whether the Housing and Economic Recovery Act’s extension of the statute of limitations applies to statutes of repose. The firm argues that too much time had passed for the FHFA to bring charges.
