The National Prearranged Services civil trial is scheduled to begin this week, and trial briefs have been filed with the Court.  The briefs outline the arguments that each party plans to prove during the course of the trial.  It is our understanding that the Special Deputy Receiver has settled with all defendant trustees except Allegiant Bank (and its corporate successors National City Bank and PNC Bank).   Hyperlinks are provided to the SDR brief, the National City Bank brief, the US Bank brief and the Court’s ruling on the parties Motion in Limine.   (While the SDR settled with US Bank subsequent to the filing of US Bank’s brief, we anticipate the remaining trustee bank will continue to pursue those arguments and the issues outlined by US Bank’s expert witness.)  We will address the arguments in future posts.
