After the recent wave of bank failures, the FDIC filed liability actions against the former directors and officers of some banks—but not all. Why were some executives sued and others weren’t?

The D&O Diary examines this question in a new article. The article features extensive comments from Womble Carlyle attorney Jonathan Reich, the author of, “Does the FDIC Only Sue Bankers Who Have D&O Insurance?” This article originally was published at Womble Carlyle blog, All Risks Covered.
