BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Bank of America $8.5B deal returned to N.Y. state court

Bank of America $8.5B deal returned to N.Y. state court

(Reuters)—Bank of America Corp.'s proposed $8.5 billion settlement with investors in mortgage-backed securities should be returned to New York state court for review, a U.S. appeals court ruled Monday.

The decision by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is a win for Bank of America, which is seeking approval to settle claims by investors in 530 mortgage securitization trusts with $174 billion of unpaid principal.

The ruling reverses an October decision by U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley taking the case from state court.
