In a case that has been litigated since 2004, and on which we have frequently reported, the New York Attorney General (“NYAG”) has attempted to block progress toward resolution by filing an objection to the pending settlement between class plaintiffs and a group of defendants. The NYAG asserts that the settlement is “unfair and inadequate” because it does not take into account an allegedly fraudulent finite reinsurance transaction between AIG and General Reinsurance Corp. The court found that the NYAG lacks standing to object, both under the Class Action Fairness Act and constitutional standing requirements, and denied the NYAG’s request for intervention taking into consideration the interest of the settlement class to resolve the matter without further delay. The court did, however, entertain the NYAG’s concerns about misrepresentations in the Class Notice regarding findings from the plaintiffs’ loss causation expert and ordered a Supplemental Notice to be sent out, which includes an additional opportunity to opt out of the settlement class. The Fairness Hearing for the proposed settlement is set for April 10, 2013. In re American International Group, Inc. Securities Litigation, Case No. 04-cv-8141 (USDC S.D.N.Y. Jan. 7, 2013).
