announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United
States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf
of employees and/or former employees of IndyMac Bancorp. Inc.
(“IndyMac” or “the Company”) and asserting violations of the Employee
Retirement Income Benefits Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) against the
Company and other fiduciaries of the Plan.
To be a member of the class you need not take any action at this time,

former employee of IndyMac (Pink Sheets:IDMC) who invested in the

The Complaint alleges that IndyMac and other administrator and
fiduciaries of the Plan breached their ERISA-mandated fiduciary duties
of loyalty and prudence to participants and beneficiaries of the Plan.
The administrator and the fiduciaries of the Plan failed to manage the
assets of the Plan prudently and loyally, by investing the assets in
the Company stock at a time when it was no longer a prudent investment
for participants’ retirement savings. In particular, IndyMac and the
Plan’s administrator and fiduciaries continued to invest in IndyMac
stock in the Plan, despite knowingly inflating the price of the IndyMac
stock by issuing materially false and misleading statements regarding
the Company’s business and financial results.
