Case Name
Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank Fair Housing/Lending/Insurance

Docket / Court 94 C 4094 ( N.D. Ill. ) FH-IL-0011

State/Territory Illinois

Case Summary

Plaintiffs filed their class action lawsuit on July 6, 1994, alleging that Citibank had engaged in redlining practices in the Chicago metropolitan area in violation of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), 15 U.S.C. 1691; the Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619; the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and 42 U.S.C. 1981, 1982. Plaintiffs alleged that the Defendant-bank rejected loan applications of minority applicants while approving loan applications filed by white applicants with similar financial characteristics and credit histories. Plaintiffs sought injunctive relief, actual damages, and punitive damages.

U.S. District Court Judge Ruben Castillo certified the Plaintiffs’ suit as a class action on June 30, 1995. Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 162 F.R.D. 322 (N.D. Ill. 1995). Also on June 30, Judge Castillo granted Plaintiffs’ motion to compel discovery of a sample of Defendant-bank’s loan application files. Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 162 F.R.D. 338 (N.D. Ill. 1995).

The parties voluntarily dismissed the case on May 12, 1998, pursuant to a settlement agreement.

That would be a nice little firecracker for McCain to throw at Obama tonight. I wonder if they have an answer for that one. Probably “I was just a hired lawyer doing my job” or some silliness.

If this was from way back in 94, wouldn’t you think that foreclosures would have been happening much sooner than 14 to 15 years later? I say that a very big part of this is the over-extended second mortgage holders that were trying to play the game with the ARM rates and lost.

True, but I am a Fannie Mae stockholder whose annual reports consistently named “minority” potential homeowners as their chief target.

Too, I was referring to this thread’s theme: “community activist” Obama’s activities. I doubt seriously he was going to bat for Jim and Midge in the suburbs looking to double their square footage and add a swimming pool.

“According to Barney Frank, you are racist (and probably homophobic) for posting this truthful story on Freerepublic!”

Let chant “racist” all they want.

1. It’s not racist to point out that these suits and government policies wrecked our economy.

2. Accuse us of being racist? Oh, will that make blacks not vote for McCain? Oh wait...they weren’t going to vote McCain anyway.

3. Keep up the “racist” line of attack and you’ll get the “Bradley Effect” to show for it.

I’m good with all that.

The settlement was reached in May 1998.

Assume Citibank began issuing loans to poorly qualified applicants in 1999. Assume they issue 5-year balloon loans or ARMs that begin to go into default in 2004.

Entirely plausible that this lawsuit contributed (significantly) to the current mess.

I don’t expect McCain to lob any bombs that haven’t already been floated past the Media to see how well they’d play. The ‘undecideds’ might not know how to evaluate Obama’s reaction if they’d never heard it themselves.

“very big part of this is the over-extended second mortgage holders”

A VERY SMALL PART, actually...

The BIGGEST part of this is the MASSIVE inner-city mortgage frauds.

This is just ONE SCHEME, from ONE Mid-sized US City.

Now, multiply this by a hundred cities, many LARGER, like Detroit, and you just BEGIN to see how this started.


On Wednesday, the prosecutor’s office announced charges of welfare fraud and theft against six men. Investigators say they were involved in different mortgage cartels over the past three to seven years.

Mehran Valiyi, Brian Beach, Marcus Dewayne Ward and Omar Dillard were all involved with different schemes all with the same result: defrauding HUD out of $284,000 and facilitating $37 million in mortgage loans that investigators say the suspects never paid on. Two out-of-state residents, Patrick Ladarius and Preston Forte, were also charged.

Investigators say the suspects took out almost $38 million in mortgages under fake companies they created, buying 568 homes across the city and then re-selling them for an inflated price to investors. The suspects never paid the mortgages on the homes they bought, sending properties like the one at 917 North Parker into foreclosure, according to the report.

Investigators say the suspects also registered some of their properties as Section 8 so they could collect HUD money all while not paying the home’s mortgage. Soon the home was in foreclosure and unsuspecting renters were on the street.

“Then they file for bankruptcy to keep from having to pay the judgment on the foreclosure and its just a never ending circle,” said Barbara Crawford, Marion County prosecutor’s office.

Authorities credit the Targeting Violent Crime Initiative for establishing links between violent crime and mortgage fraud cartels, leading to the charges against these 6 suspects.

But, you don’t get it.

EVERYTHING is Racist, now!

A Florida Sherriff saying Obama’s middle name, “HUSSEIN” is racist. Mentioning the origins of this financial meltdown is racist.

In fact, ANYTHING that may harm “THE ONE!” is racist, don’t you already know that??

It took 4 years to settle the lawsuit. May 1998 was when they settled. Time frame is about right for a settlement highly favorable to plaintiffs. Circa 1998 is the same time frame for Boston area banks being forced to make very hight risk loans by the US Justice Dept.

Obama’s Unsavory Ties to Islamic Extremists
http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1225036822047&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull
Barack Obama is hiding ties to Islamic extremists, black nationalists and anti-Semites that stretch back decades. Some reportedly helped pay his college tuition. Others have housed his campaign operations, raised political funds, and pressed his case to be the next president of the United States. They are unsavory characters, and among his staunchest supporters.

Ex-CIA Expert: Obama Took Millions in Illegal Foreign Donations
http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/obama_illegal_donors/2008/10/29/145612.html
A Newsmax investigation of Obama/Biden campaign contributors has discovered dozens who appear to lack U.S. citizenship or residency—a violation of federal law. But that may only be the tip of the iceberg. Some donors work for foreign governments, and others are quite open about being citizens of countries like Nigeria, Pakistan and Canada. Most campaign organizations guard against such abuse, but not this one.
