CME Group Statement

CHICAGO, April 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CME Group, today released the following statement regarding the lawsuit, Braman v. CME Group and The Board of Trade of the City of Chicago:

"The suit is devoid of any facts supporting the allegations and, even worse, demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of how our markets operate. It is sad when plaintiffs' lawyers bring a suit based on a desire for publicity, and in the rush to file a suit fail to undertake even the most basic effort to determine if there is any basis for their allegations. The case is without merit, and we intend to defend ourselves vigorously."
