The Trustee Has The Power to Represent the Securitization Trusts in Court Proceedings
The Trustee has the power to represent the Securitization Trusts in litigation and the resolution of related disputes
by compromise and settlement will bind all relevant parties. See e.g., Carey v. Brown, 92 U.S. 171

enter into and consummate a settlement and compromise on behalf of itself and all Certificateholders. Shaw v.
