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”.

MF Global's U.K. arm takes trustee to court


LONDON (Reuters)—MF Global Holdings Ltd.'s U.K. affiliate on Thursday filed litigation in a British court over a $700 million dispute with MF Global's U.S. broker-dealer, the broker-dealer's trustee said in a statement.

Trustee James Giddens has argued that roughly $700 million at the U.K. affiliate's estate belongs to the broker-dealer's customers who traded on foreign exchanges. The U.K. affiliate has said the money belongs to its own customers.

Mr. Giddens said last month that the sides were at an impasse and would require court intervention.

Mr. Giddens has estimated that customers are missing a total of about $1.6 billion that disappeared from their accounts as MF Global sank.
