“Goldman Sachs will be paying $56.5 million to settle a U.S class action lawsuit which accused it and other banks of rigging an interest rate benchmark in a $553 trillion derivatives market.”
This case is one of the pending cases in Manhattan federal court accusing banks of planning to rig rate benchmarks, securities prices or commodities prices. In the lawsuit, several pension funds and municipalities accused 14 banks of conspiring to rig the “ISDAfix” benchmark for their own gain from 2009 to 2012.
