The largest underwriter of commercial and industrial insurance in the United States, AIG seeks to delay an $8.5 billion settlement between Bank of America and a group of 22 mortgage securities investors. Bank of America Corp.’s settlement will be delayed at least two weeks, reported Bloomberg News, after the American International Group’s lawyers filed papers in New York State Supreme Court. Black Rock Inc., Met Life Inc., and Pacific Investment Management Co. are among some of the institutions supporting the settlement.

Justice Saliann Scarpulla of New York state court in Manhattan, took over the case this week, and has agreed to delay the decision. According to lawyers involved in the case, the decision will be delayed from taking effect until at least February 19. Justice Barbara Kapnick is the Judge who approved the settlement with the investors, and according to The New York Times, was promoted to a state appeals court.

A spokesman for Bank of America, Lawrence Grayson, declined to comment on the delay. Kevin Heine, a spokesman for Bank of New York Mellon declined to comment on the issue as well.

The lawyer representing the 22 investors, Kenneth Warner, wrote in a letter to the judge that a delay would be “prejudicial to the thousands of certificate holders who are waiting for the settlement proceeds to be distributed.”
