BankUnited Financial Corp.; Alfred R. Camner; Ramiro A. Ortiz; Humerto L. Lopez Waterford Township General Employees Retirement System, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida n/a Plaintiffs allege that during the class period Defendants "embarked upon, and implemented, an unlawful strategy for increasing BankUnited’s market value artificially." This unlawful strategy included Defendants’ repeated assurances in public releases, statements, and reports as to BankUnited’s strict credit quality standards, conservative appraisal and underwriting practices, adequate loan loss reserve ratios, and strong capital position. Plaintiffs assert that these representations were misleading, and served to conceal the unsound undertakings that increasingly characterized the Bank’s lending practices.
