In addition to serving as AIG’s founders, directors and officers, defendants were all voting shareholders of AIG affiliate and non-party Starr International Company, Inc. (SICO). On March, 2005, AIG alleges that defendants seized control of SICO by causing nine of the AIG executives, then serving as SICO directors, to be removed from the SICO board.
