NEW YORK, March 23 PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
has settled a $3 billion lawsuit in which the bankruptcy
administrator of MF Global Holdings Ltd accused the auditor of
malpractice that led to the collapse of the brokerage run by
former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine.
Terms were not disclosed, but the case was "settled to the
mutual satisfaction of the parties," representatives for PwC and
the administrator said in separate statements on Thursday.
The accord ends a trial that had begun on March 7 in the
U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
