Investors Notch Victory Over Fannie, Freddie Profits


WASHINGTON—Investors in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac notched a win in their yearslong challenge to the U.S. sweep of nearly all of the mortgage-finance giants’ profits, a victory in their fight for gains from the companies’ return to profitability.

An appellate court on Friday overturned a ruling that supported a government decision in 2012 to sweep all the mortgage-finance giants’ profits to the Treasury Department. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the investors can now pursue their claims at a trial court.
