06/23/16 04:02 PMDodd, Frank blast ruling that MetLife not too big to fail - [Reuters] - A federal court's striking down of the government's designation of insurer MetLife Inc as "too-big-to-fail" could undermine efforts to head off another financial crisis, authors of the landmark Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law said. In a brief filed on Thursday with a federal appeals court, former Senator Chris Dodd, former Representative Barney Frank and other Democratic party leaders said the designation was necessary to bring a key nonbank financial institution under an effective regulatory regime. Signed by 20 current and former lawmakers, the brief opposes U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer's order in March, now under appeal, rescinding the government's 2014 designation of MetLife as a systematically important financial institution.

06/16/16 09:33 PMU.S. strikes back at judge's decision that MetLife not 'too big to fail' - [Reuters] - The U.S. government laid out its arguments against a federal judge's decision to strike down the designation of life insurer MetLife Inc as "too big to fail" in a brief filed late on Thursday, showing how it intends to defend a key provision of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law. MetLife sued the U.S. government last year, saying the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC), made up of the chiefs of U.S. financial regulatory agencies, used a flawed process in determining it could hurt the U.S. financial system if it faced financial distress. On March 30, U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer rescinded the designation and the federal government appealed in the U.S. District Court of Washington, D.C.
