Supreme Court Ruling

MINNEAPOLIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) has issued the following
statement in response to a ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Court on Friday, Jan. 7, 2011.

Our role in this case is solely as trustee for a securitization trust that owned the mortgage at issue. U.S. Bank is not
the originator, owner or servicer of the loan in question, nor is it the sponsor or depositor for the securitization trust.
The foreclosure in question was conducted by the servicer on behalf of, and in the name of, the securitization trust.
That is the only reason our name appears in this case. As trustee, U.S. Bank has no responsibility for the terms of the
underlying mortgage, foreclosure procedure, the conduct of the servicer, the process by which the mortgage is
transferred to the trust, or the sufficiency of the mortgage documentation.
