Court Grants Fairholme's Discovery Motion in Fannie Freddie Suit

A federal judge on Wednesday granted Bruce Berkowitz’s Fairholme Funds Inc. a motion to conduct discovery in its lawsuit against the U.S. government that challenges changes that the Treasury Department made to its bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

The ruling marked an initial victory for shareholders in what figures to be a long-running battle with the U.S. government over its 2012 decision to require Fannie and Freddie to send all of their profits to the government as part of the mortgage companies’ 2008 bailouts.
