Westpac has elected to let the courts decide whether allegations of rigging the bank bill swap rate have any foundation. National Australia Bank and the ANZ, which were also alleged by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission of rigging the BBSW, have agreed to a settlement over the issue. The case against Westpac will begin in the Federal Court on 31 October, with the case likely to run until the end of the year.
