WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on March 18 declined review of a Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that a pension fund has standing to assert claims for relief on behalf of mortgage-backed securities purchasers even though the pension fund lacks standing to assert the claims on its own behalf (Goldman, Sachs & Co., et al. v. NECA-IBEW Health & Welfare Fund, No. 12-528, U.S. Sup.).
