State Street Sets Up Reserve for Possible Mortgage-Related Securities Liability

State Street Corp. will set aside $618 million to cover possible liability resulting from lawsuits filed by five clients who were invested in State Street funds that experienced substantial losses because of investments in mortgage-related securities.  Four of the clients are pension funds that allege they were told their money would be invested in risk-free debt like Treasuries.  The suits allege breach of fiduciary duties under pension law.  In addition, the CEO of State Street's investment management unit resigned.  NYTimes, State Street Corp.
