This is a securities class action lawsuit against Franklin Bank and the Company's CEO and CFO.
The class action complaint alleges that Franklin Bank violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges that, during the Class Period, Franklin Bank engaged in a variety of accounting improprieties, including its admitted failure to charge off uncollectible loans and to mark Franklin's loans to market. As a result of the misconduct alleged, defendants understated Franklin Bank's delinquent, nonperforming, and uncollectible loans and thereby misrepresented Franklin's financial condition and results, including its overall and per-share profits and the fair market value of its residential mortgage loan portfolio.
