On March 25, 2011, Judge Paul A. Crotty of the Southern District of New York granted partial summary judgment to Syncora Guarantee, Inc., a monoline insurer, in a suit against Bear Stearns affiliate EMC Mortgage Corp. In that decision, Judge Crotty rejected EMC's argument that the exclusive remedy available to Syncora for breaches of representations and warranties on Home Equity Line of Credit ("HELOC") residential mortgage loans underlying the insured securitization was the repurchase of the individually identified, non-complying loans. Instead, the court, citing the broad rights and remedies for which Syncora bargained, accepted Syncora's position that it "could seek a pool-wide remedy based on sampling and extrapolation."
