Deutsche Bank launched a legal appeal against a German labour court ruling that forced it to reinstate four fired traders, potentially exposing the lender to new embarrassing testimony.
Reuters reports that Deutsche is seeking to reverse a September ruling in favour of four traders who claimed wrongful dismissal after the bank accused them of violating company policy by inappropriately communicating with other traders over benchmark interbank lending rates.
The appeal risks exposing the lender, which already faces a long list of lawsuits and legal actions, to another lengthy process as regulators pore over evidence produced at the first labour court action.
Regulators around the world are investigating the role of Deutsche Bank and other banks and brokers in the global rate- rigging scandal.
