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. Lawyers presented internal bank emails that identified some mortgages as "crap" or from "extremely dysfunctional" lenders, while the banks alleged that they fully disclosed the poor quality of the products.
