Libor Litigation

The website Libor Litigation is a project of the Stanford Law School Robert Crown Law Library to collect, organize and maintain materials pertaining to the Libor["London InterBank Offered Rate"]-Based Financial Instruments Antitrust Litigation (U.S. Dist. Court for the S.D.N.Y. 11-md-2262) and related matters. This litigation and various government investigations throughout the world relate to the alleged collusion among at least 16 banks and their fraudulent manipulation of Libor, the rate used as a benchmark between banks for pricing trillions of dollars worth of financial instruments and contracts around the globe (thus indirectly affecting the cost of loans that people pay when they take out loans — such as when consumers buy a home or car). The materials on the website include litigation documents -- such as complaints and service lists -- and bibliographies and government reports, among other things.
