Citigroup has a date with the courts on July 16, 2012

From Reuters today:

A judge on Monday rejected a proposed $285 million settlement between Citigroup Inc and the top market regulator over the sale of toxic mortgage debt and ordered a trial.

In a written opinion, Manhattan federal court judge Jed Rakoff said the proposed settlement was "neither reasonable, nor fair, nor adequate, nor in the public interest."
