SAN FRANCISCO — The National Federation of Municipal Analysts said Wednesday it has filed an amicus curiae brief in a California Superior Court in support of a lawsuit filed by insurer Syncora Guarantee Inc. over laws that extinguished redevelopment agencies in the state.

The NFMA said in a statement that it rarely files amicus briefs and almost never in trial court, saying the "board felt strongly that an exception should be made in this case given that the matter before the court has such far-reaching ramifications for the municipal bond market."
