Appeals Hearing Update for the Highland Floating Rate Opportunities Fund

By October 26, 2017Announcements
  • Oral argument took place on October 18, 2017 in the Claymore v. Credit Suisse appeal.
  • At the hearing, it was clear that the judges understood both sides’ arguments and the trial court’s findings in favor of the Fund.
  • Highland believes that Credit Suisse failed to address the fundamental question: Credit Suisse does not challenge the fraud finding against it, so why shouldn’t Credit Suisse be held accountable?
  • While litigation is inherently uncertain, Highland remains confident in its legal position and believes that the judgment should be affirmed on appeal.
