Lowey Dannenberg won another significant ruling in Laydon v. Mizuho Bank Ltd. et al., litigation concerning the conspiracy to manipulate the Yen-Libor benchmark interest rate, when a New York federal judge rejected a bid by Deutsche Bank AG, JPMorgan & Chase Co., Societe Generale, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp., Mizuho Corporate Bank Ltd. and other banks to have investors pursue documents in the U.K. via the Hague Convention.  In his ruling, Judge Henry B. Pitman said: “The moving defendants have failed to establish that they would suffer a hardship so significant to displace the Federal Rules in favor of the Hague Convention.” Read the Law360 article, “Banks Lose Fight over UK Document Chase In Yen Libor Suit”, here.
