"After two and a half years of failures nearly every Friday, and a pile of about 350 collapsed banks, one former management team of a shuttered thrift has decided to fight back.

The former United Western Bank, a $2 billion-asset Denver thrift, along with its holding company and key principals, became the first plaintiffs during the current financial crisis to mount a court challenge to a failure. In a lawsuit filed late last week, they claim that the Office of Thrift Supervision and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. undermined their recovery plan and locked their doors prematurely."
