Germany's L-Bank Files Lawsuit against European Central Bank

Germany's L-Bank filed lawsuit against European Central Bank. The lawsuit was filed at the European Court of Justice on 12 March, the lawsuit would be a vital test case for both parties as the developments are being watched by several other smaller banks. At the end of 2013, L-Bank which had assets of EUR 70.7 billion ($77 billion), was placed on ECB's list of 123 significant financial institutions that are said to be directly supervised by it, starting November. L-Bank argues that it has a simple and clear business model and said higher costs that are tied to the supervision by ECB would undermine its ability to support local families and businesses.
