Judge Releases Protected Documents in GSE Court Case

This week, a judge removed the protective order on seven documents related to the U.S. Treasury’s sweep of GSE profits, revealing what shareholders and industry groups have been arguing for years: that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were in a position to post profits on a sustained basis. In a whirlwind of court activity over the past month involving GSE shareholders, Court of Federal Claims Judge Margaret Sweeney decided on April 12 to release certain documents that appellants in Fairholme Funds, Inc. et. al. v. United States and Perry Capital v. Lew, moved to be made public. This is ahead of the D.C. Circuit schedule oral argument for the Perry case on April 15 and it intensified talks of government corruption and false claims of protecting taxpayers via the sweep.
