Wednesday, 6 Feb 2013 11:28am EST 

Dow Jones reported that $90 million legal victory by Assured Guaranty Ltd. (AGO) against Flagstar Bancorp Inc. (FBC) over soured mortgages is signaling that bond insurers may prevail over home lenders in a thicket of battles over lax underwriting standards. The battle between Assured Guaranty and Flagstar is just one case in a web of lawsuits to stem from billions of dollars of mortgage-based bonds that soured in the wake of the financial crisis. Among the allegations Assured Guaranty leveled at Flagstar were that the loans the bank packaged into securities were ripe with defects and out of step with Flagstar's underwriting guidelines. According to Assured Guaranty, loans were made to borrowers with debts, or who stated their income at questionably high levels. U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff concurred in a 103-page opinion issued, writing that Flagstar was notably unable to show actual instances where the loan files themselves did not contain material breaches of its guidelines.  Full Article
