A tempest is brewing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in the multibillion-dollar residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) litigation. Southern District Judge Jed S. Rakoff last week granted class certification in an RMBS case against Merrill Lynch, green-lighting claims by investors holding $16.5 billion in face value of Merrill-issued securities.

Merrill Lynch & Co., 08 civ. 10841, apparently the first of its kind, stands in stark contrast to a January decision by his colleague, Judge Harold Baer Jr., who denied class certification in two cases brought by purchasers of RMBS underwritten by Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and others.
