CFTC Files a General Creditor Claim in the Liquidation of MF
Global 
Washington, DC - On June 1, 2012, the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission (Commission) filed a general creditor claim in the
liquidation of MF Global, Inc., No. 11-02790 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).
The Commission took this action in relation to the Division of
Enforcement’s ongoing investigation related to the failure of MF
Global, Inc.  If that investigation results in an enforcement
action against MF Global, Inc., the Commission could pursue a
restitution award for the benefit of commodity customers, which
in turn could be the basis for a Commission claim as a general
creditor against the MF Global, Inc. estate.  The Commission’s
claim as a general creditor would not have priority over
customer claims.  It has been filed solely to preserve all
possible options for recovering funds for the benefit of
commodity customers.
