Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC Key Developments

Federal Court Dismiss the Complaint Against Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley

A federal court dismissed the complaint against Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and rigging of the foreign exchange market. The complaint alleged that the defendants breached their ERISA fiduciary duties and engaged in prohibited transactions arising from their alleged manipulation of the foreign currency markets for more than a decade. The banks manipulated wholesale and retail foreign currency markets, colluded to manipulate interbank wholesale fixing rates, and exchanged confidential customer information and trading positions with each other, according to the complaint. The court dismissed the plaintiffs' claims that Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley were 'functional fiduciaries' of the retirees' and other investors' investment plans, adding that the complaint failed to establish how the defendants had any discretionary control over the plans. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against 12 banks and their affiliates. U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield said the court's ruling releases Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley from the claims in the suit, but does not release the other defendants that did not move for dismissal of the complaint.
