Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Retirement Fund et al v. Citco Fund Services (Cayman Islands) Ltd. et al: Complaint
Complaint in Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Retirement Fund, FIA Leveraged Fund Ltd., Fletcher Income Arbitrage Fund Ltd., and Fletcher International Ltd. v. Citco Fund Services (Cayman Islands) Ltd., Citco Fund Services (Suisse) SA, Citco Group Ltd., Citco Trading, Inc., Citco Global Custody (NA) NV, Citco Bank Corporation NV, SFT Bank NV, and Ermanno Unternaehrer at New York Supreme Court.
Fund administrator Citco knew that Lancer Offshore was fraudulently valuing assets nearly two years before the fund collapsed but its sole concern was how to extricate itself from the $400 million insolvency, rather than warn investors and regulators. That is the most serious allegation contained in a civil lawsuit that was filed as long ago as January 14, 2005 at the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida but kept sealed until February 21, 2006 due to concerns that its release may breach a court order prohibiting disclosure of certain information. It is supported by copies of extraordinary email exchanges between Citco's senior executives that were disclosed in discovery that Citco opposed.
