  • June 15, 2021, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ("OCC") submitted a rare amicus brief in support of Bank of America in Hymes v. Bank of America, N.A.,  before the Eastern District of New York. The OCC noted that the case "is a matter of foundational consequence to the OCC and to the federal banking system." The EDNY stated this was a matter of first impression for all Circuits except the Ninth -- the facts are very similar to those in Lusnak v. Bank of America, N.A.,  which was decided in favor of the plaintiffs, and for which the Supreme Court denied certiorari.
