A slew of lawsuits by investors and customers of MF Global Holdings Ltd who sued over the futures brokerage’s collapse have been consolidated into one case in Manhattan federal court, a court document showed.

In an order filed late on Monday, a group of judges granted a request by former MF Chief Executive Jon Corzine and three other former company executives named as defendants in the lawsuits to consolidate the cases under one roof.

The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation said in its transfer order that the cases should be combined despite objections by commodities futures customers, one group of plaintiffs, who did not want their cases combined with lawsuits by securities investors.
