NEW YORK Feb 21 A U.S. judge on Tuesday
dismissed most of an investor lawsuit accusing major banks of
conspiring to manipulate the benchmark European Interbank
Offered Rate, or Euribor.
In a 100-page decision, U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel in
Manhattan said most of the plaintiffs lacked standing to pursue
antitrust claims, and that several claims must fail because of a
lack of evidence or because they involved foreign conduct.
Castel said the investors may pursue one antitrust claim and
two common law claims against Citigroup Inc and JPMorgan
Chase & Co.
