Case Synopsis

The Court considered whether the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) divests a court of jurisdiction to consider any defenses or affirmative defenses not first adjudicated through FIRREA’s claims process. The Court also considered, as a matter of first impression, whether FIRREA’s jurisdictional bar extends to successors in interest to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
