On October 9, 2020, Judge Paul A. Englemeyer of the United States Court for the Southern District of New York appointed Lowey Dannenberg as lead counsel in In re JPMorgan Treasuries Futures Spoofing Litigation, 20-cv-03515 (S.D.N.Y.), arising out of JPMorgan’s alleged manipulating of the treasuries futures in a more than decade long scheme that formed the basis for portions of JPMorgan’s recent $920 million settlement with the DOJ, CFTC, and SEC.

In appointing Lowey, Judge Englemeyer cited the firm’s experience and “successful track record” of securing class certification and settlements in CEA cases, and extensive experience in spoofing cases, particularly those involving commodities. A copy of the Court’s order can be downloaded here.
