AIG retrieves $2B of soured crisis MBSs

AIG (NYSE:AIG) has recouped more than $2B in settlements with banks over the shoddy mortgage bonds that almost led to the insurer's collapse during the financial crisis.

Most of the settlements were completed though private deals with banks such as Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan and BofA.

The out-of-court settlements means the AIG is unlikely to pursue further legal action against big banks.

    Good idea for AIG to settle for the $2B, instead of dragging it out for a "possible" bigger settlement that the lawyers would get most of anyway.

    Agree with Bahamas1! Besides, AIG shouldn't have bought those bonds if they didn't know what they consisted of; so, partially culpable equates to not getting "every" penny back. A good decision by AIG!
