MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF IN SUPPORTOF THE PUBLIC INTEREST
The Movant, Occupy Wall Street - Alternative Banking Group (“OWS-AB”), hereby requests leave, pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure29(b) and this Court’s Local Rule 29.1, to file a brief as amicus curiae in support of the public interest doctrine in this litigation.OWS-AB is a group within the New York-based Occupy Wall Streetmovement. OWS-AB seeks specific improvements to existing and pendingfinancial services industry legislation and regulations, in addition to evaluating andrecommending alternative approaches to banking. OWS-AB also seeks tounderstand and educate people about the current financial system.OWS-AB files this amicus brief to express its support for Judge Rakoff’sdecision to pursue the relevant facts necessary to determine the adequacy of thesettlement between the SEC and Citigroup (“NAND settlement”). We agree thatthe public interest demands that such facts be thoroughly disclosed and examined.As advocates for transparency and education regarding the financial crisis and thefinancial system, OWS-AB believes that a full review of the facts underlying thecase is crucial to the public’s understanding of the current financial environment.In a case that turns on the “public interest,” we urge the Court to consider our viewpoints, which reflect at least some of the opinions of the broader community.
