Morgan Stanley vigorously denies all claims of the alleged wrongdoing and entered the settlement without any such admission in order to avoid costly class-action litigation.

The settlement still need court approval. In it, Morgan Stanley agrees to pay $4.95 million to resolve the claims, along with an additional $1.55 million for administrative costs.

Plaintiffs are continuing to pursue antitrust claims against other entities in the municipal derivatives industry.
