"Legal implications linked to complex guardianship applications can also contribute to delays." &! &! &!

Cuomo Sues Bank of America as It Settles With S.E.C. -
Mr. Cuomo made some new claims in a 90-page complaint filed on Thursday. The complaint painted Mr. Price as the central figure in the case. Mr. Cuomo accused Mr. Price of hiding the extent of Merrill’s losses from Bank of America’s own lawyers when seeking advice on whether to update shareholders about the deepening pool of red ink.

One Bank of America executive commented in a note about the losses that read “read and weep,” the complaint says.

Legal experts said that many controversial issues stemming from the financial crisis — rich bonuses for bankers, allegations of government fraud, potential harm to investors — come together in the Merrill-Bank of America case.
