    Update: CNBC confirms that the New York Fed is part of a consortium that have launched a lawsuit against BofA regarding Countrywide mortgages. Shares are now off 3%. Original post: Interesting! Shares of Bank of America (BAC) are getting crushed on headlines that the New York Fed and PIMCO are about to jump on the Bank of America mortgage putback bandwagon.

    4 In Your Corner continues to investigate the Rocket Docket. That's the speedy-foreclosure process in Southwest Florida's 20th Judicial Circuit.

    Bank of America alleged in a court filing this June: It appears as though many loans and other mortgage-related assets have been double and even triple-pledged to various constituencies As I have repeatedly pointed out, the failure of the mortgage originators and banks to prepare and record proper documentation has led to an epidemic of fraud. The pledging of the same mortgage again and again to different trusts related to mortgage backed securities is just one result. And as long-time foreclosure investigator Nye Lavalle writes: On thousands of occasions I stated to regulators, CEOS, banks, Fannie and Freddie that the...

Bank of America said the company hasn't found significant problems with its process for seizing homes. The bank...

Scott also said office managers and key staff members got gifts, including new cars. Stern’s law firm is one of the largest foreclosure law firms in Florida, handling thousands of cases per month. Attorney General Bill McCollum is investigating the firm for allegedly creating phony documents. McCollum’s...
