ABSTRACT
This article presents information about documents that support the theory that Bank of America Corp. (B of A) used the threat of abandoning its agreement to buy Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. to get more government funds. The documents are handwritten notes from a meeting between B of A and its legal counsel the day before B of A's chief executive Kenneth Lewis contacted U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson advising him the bank was considering invoking a material adverse change clause.
