September 30, 2011

(Updates with amount of claim in second paragraph.)

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- The trustee of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.’s defunct brokerage said a so-called house claim filed by Lehman Brothers International (Europe) should be rejected because the affiliate isn’t a customer of the brokerage, according to a statement by the trustee.

The Lehman affiliate is seeking $8.9 billion from the brokerage, according to a court filing.
