Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank fail to end US mortgage lawsuits
She dismissed some claims over representations concerning owner-occupied homes and loan values.
The FHFA became the conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after federal regulators seized the mortgage financiers on Sept. 7, 2008.
In May, Deutsche Bank agreed to pay $202.3 million in a separate federal probe, in which its MortgageIT unit admitted it had lied to the U.S. government over whether its loans were eligible for federal mortgage insurance.
Cote said it is too soon to decide liability over MortgageIT activity that predated its 2007 takeover by Deutsche Bank.
The cases are Federal Housing Finance Agency v. Deutsche Bank AG et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 11-06192; and Federal Housing Finance Agency v. Goldman Sachs & Co et al in the same court, No. 11-06198.
