Against First Marblehead Corporation

The Complaint charges that First Marblehead and certain of its officers
and directors violated federal securities laws by issuing materially
false and misleading statements about the quality of First Marblehead’s
securitizations. Specifically, the Complaint charges, among other
things, that First Marblehead misrepresented the level of default rates
in its portfolio and the default rates’ effect on the Company’s ability
to securitize additional student loan underwritings. The Complaint also
states that First Marblehead recklessly disregarded that its student
loan guarantor, The Education Resources Institute, was under-reserved
and unable to adequately insure student loans underwritten by the
Company. The guarantor filed for bankruptcy protection on April 7,

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than June 9, 2008,
request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A
lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other class
members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to share in
any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek
appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important
decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members.
