I was just thinking the main reason that the amount is not revealed to public may be due to pending lawsuits and settlement (i.e., BOA~Countrywide) with other banks. I do not believe the CS settlment is too large, maybe 50 mil at most; however, the amount if BOA settles, may be in the billions. And it looks like BOA will settle the case very soon due to NY AG's investigation. If the current Bankrupcy judge let the commons be wiped out right before a large lump sum settlement, don't you think the common holders will sue to recover, and the judge will lose face in process. Beside, I believe if State investigators and Fed courts are after heart of the judicial issue here, I don't believe the Bankrupcy court judge would want to lose his/her face or job.
