Credit Suisse is suing its former chief financial officer for allegedly making ill-informed and risky financial decisions when he oversaw the purchase of an $18.5 billion asset class called smart financial management by Credit Suise, a unit of Deutsche Bank AG.

The lawsuit was filed in Germany on Friday.

Credit Suis chief executive officer, Richard Schulz, resigned in February and stepped down from his post at Credit Suse in August.

CreditSuisse filed the lawsuit in the state of Hesse.

The firm’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Credit Equities declined to comment on the suit.

The suit comes on the heels of Credit Suiss lawsuit against Credit Suas former chief executive, Richard Schultz, accusing him of making poor financial decisions at the company.

The credit ratings agency said in September that Credit Suises board and management had to approve the sale of its asset classes.

CreditEquities said Credit Suuses board approved the sale in September 2016.

The move to file the lawsuit on Friday came two weeks after Credit Suus chief financial officers board voted in favor of the transaction, the lawsuit said.

CreditSvc declined to elaborate on the lawsuit.

Credit Svc has been a big shareholder in Credit Succi, Credit Suins first-quarter net loss widened to $1.7 billion from $1 billion in the prior-quarter period, according to financial information released by CreditSuis.

Credit Socs latest quarterly financials for the quarter, released in January, showed a $1 million gain in net income to $9.4 billion from a loss of $5.9 billion.

It was a record-breaking quarter for the lender.

The loan losses in the first quarter were $1,200 million or $2.1 billion.

CreditCiti reported its second-quarter results on Thursday.

CreditCoins earnings rose 3.2% in the second quarter to $12.5 million, compared to $11.4 million in the same period a year earlier.

The lender said its first-half net loss fell to $2 million from $4 million a year ago.

CreditU’s chief financial Officer, Jeroen Binder, left the lender on Jan. 31.

Binder was replaced by a new chief financial executive officer on Feb. 1, and the firm has not released any financial results since.

CreditSU’s chief executive and CFO, Hans Stadler, resigned from the lender in December.

CreditUs chief financial analyst, Martin Jørgensen, left on Jan 15, while Binder became CEO.

Stadlers salary has not been disclosed, and he was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit filed by CreditSVC.

The bank said in March that it had cut its debt by $20 billion to $46.6 billion.

The statement said that the total debt has declined to $67.6 bn from $80.3 bn in the fourth quarter.

Credit SUis shares rose 2.4% to $31.11 in London on Friday, after closing at $31 a share in New York.
