A bank was ordered to stop selling securities.

BRIEFLY

February 19, 1986

A federal judge ordered Bankers Trust of New York to stop selling short-term securities--mostly so called "commercial paper"--on behalf of corporate clients. U.S. District Judge Joyce Hens Green said the injunction would go into effect March 1 to allow the bank a reasonable time to discontinue its commercial paper placement services in an orderly manner. The ruling followed Judge Green's Feb. 4 ruling in which she overruled the Federal Reserve Board and said the bank violated the 53-year-old Glass-Steagall Act by distributing securities.
