DZ Bank alleges that UBS misrepresented the underwriting standards used to originate mortgage loans underlying RMBS that DZ Bank purchased for more than $160 million. DZ Bank also alleges that UBS’s offering materials misrepresented information about the legal validity of the trusts and the transfer of loans into the trusts. DZ Bank brings claims for common-law fraud, fraudulent inducement, negligent misrepresentation, aiding and abetting fraud, declaratory judgment, and contract claims, including rescission, restitution, and mutual mistake.
