Freddie Mac (FMCC) and Fannie Mae (FNMA) alleged in court proceedings Monday that they bought "bad" mortgages because they were mislead by banks, reports the New York Post, citing court arguments. Monday was the first day of the lawsuit against Nomura (NMR) and co-defendant Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) which seeks $1B in damages as well as the ability to return the securities to the banks.
