BofA, JPMorgan, UBS, Foreclosure Deal, Goldman in Court News

Updated on

Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. were sued by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over the use of a mortgage database that the state said led to improper foreclosures.

The banks’ use of the database, known as MERS, misled homeowners, undermined foreclosure proceedings and created uncertainty about ownership interests in properties, the state said in the complaint filed Feb. 3 in New York state Supreme Court in Brooklyn.
