The Associated Press reports that former IndyMac CEO Michael W. Perry and Chief Financial Officer Scott Keys are the defendants in the settlement. The $6.5 million payment will be made in exchange for a dismissal of shareholder claims.

IndyMac's collapse in July 2008 was one of the largest bank failures in U.S. history. The lawsuit against the former bank executives accused them of concealing the depth of IndyMac's capital and liquidity problems, as well as its growing exposure to regulatory action.
