MF Global trustee James Giddens struck a deal with the CME Group that recovered $130 million in customer funds from the exchange group. The agreement must be approved by a bankruptcy court and is not associated with the $1.6 billion in missing customer funds. In addition, CME Group will assign $16.5 million to cover future claims against them and will give $28.5 million to the judge overseeing the case for later assignment.
