Fairholme Funds filed a notice of appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia of a ruling by District Court Judge Royce Lamberth that dismissed lawsuits filed by Fairholme and other plaintiffs against the U.S. Government. The lawsuits relate to the Fannie Mae (FNMA) / Freddie Mac (FMCC) Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement and subsequent amendments. Fairholme issued the following statement via its legal counsel, Charles J. Cooper of Cooper & Kirk, PLLC: “Fairholme believes strongly that the Net Worth Sweep – imposed four years after the financial crisis – was not authorized by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and must be unwound. Fairholme also believes strongly that the Federal Housing Finance Agency has contractual and fiduciary duties to the preferred shareholders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and that these duties can and will be enforced.”
