RBS becomes a headache for Citi.
A Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitration panel found Citigroup liable, and also ordered Edward Mulcahy, a former employee, to pay $250,000 to the investor, John Leopoldo Fiorilla, according to a July 30 ruling.
Shares of RBS plummeted during 2008’s credit crisis as the firm took $69 billion from taxpayers in the largest bank bailout in history.
'We are disappointed with the award, which was not supported by the facts,' Danielle Romero-Apsilos, a spokeswoman for Citigroup, said in an e-mail. Jeffrey L. Friedman, an attorney who represented Mulcahy and the bank, referred to the company’s statement when asked to comment.
Fiorilla had initially sought $19.5 million, according to the ruling.
