Fannie Mae. Beginning in August 2008, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., along with a number of other financial institutions, was named as a defendant in eight complaints filed by shareholders of Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) in connection with the underwriting of three offerings of Fannie Mae stock during 2007 and 2008. CGMI, along with the other defendants, moved to dismiss three of the suits that alleged violations of Section 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933. The remaining actions allege violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act. On January 29, 2009, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation heard oral argument on whether all lawsuits pending against CGMI and several other lawsuits pending against other defendants should be consolidated.
