Jon Corzine and other former MF Global Holdings officials have reached a $64.5m settlement of litigation brought by investors seeking to hold them liable for the now-defunct futures brokerage's 2011 bankruptcy.
Reuters reports that the all-cash settlement with Corzine, who was MF Global's chief executive and previously New Jersey's governor, and nine other defendants resolves the last major piece of litigation by MF Global stock, bond and convertible bond investors over the company's rapid descent into Chapter 11.
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in Manhattan on Tuesday evening granted preliminary approval of the settlement, which was disclosed earlier in the day. He scheduled a November 20 hearing to consider final approval.
