Litig. ($671 million recovery); Luther v. Countrywide Financial Corporation ($500 million recovery); Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund v. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

In October 2016, Lindell successfully argued in front of the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Judicial Department, for the reversal of an earlier order granting defendants’ motion to dismiss in Phoenix Light SF Limited, et al. v. Morgan Stanley, et al.

Lindell was also a member of the litigation team responsible for securing a landmark victory from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in its precedent-setting NECA-IBEW Health & Welfare Fund v. Goldman Sachs & Co. decision, which dramatically expanded the scope of permissible class actions asserting claims under the Securities Act of 1933 on behalf of mortgage-backed securities investors, and ultimately resulted in a $272 million recovery for investors.
