One of the largest financial institutions in Germany Commerzbank, requires four US banks for damages in the amount of $ 2 billion dollars judicially. The plaintiff appealed to the District Court of New York, demanding to punish US banks for improper fulfillment of obligations.
Defendants in the case are: Deutsche Bank National Trust (US subsidiary), Bank of New York Mellon Corp, Wells Fargo, and HSBC Bank USA. The court session will be held in the District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The bank estimates its losses in such a way: as a result of cooperation with the US banks in the total amount has been lost about $ 2 billion that Commerzbank is now trying to return through the court.
