"We will put people in jail," Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller said, according to homeowner advocates present at the meeting in Des Moines. Miller said the 50 attorneys general (FLORIDA PAM BONDI) participating in the investigation want criminal prosecutions as part of a big settlement with home-loan providers. The probe launched this fall in the wake of news that the foreclosure processes at many large banks (Deutsche Bank) are as bogus as the lending practices that fed the housing bubble in the first place, as banks granted loans indiscriminately to feed derivatives-market speculation and failed to track original mortgage documents after packaging the loans and selling them to investors.
Several banks temporarily halted foreclosures shortly after some of the more egregious practices were revealed, but resumed seizing homes as the scandal fell off the front pages. "One of the main tools needs to be principal reductions, just like in the farm crisis in the 1980s," Miller told the assembled homeowners, adding that he also supported restitution for victims of wrongful foreclosure. "There should be some kind of compensation system for people who have been harmed."
NEW YORK Fri Jan 28, 2011 7:08pm EST. U.S. investigates Deutsche Bank in foreclosure case; (Reuters) - A branch of the U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether Deutsche Bank filed false documents and attempted to mislead a bankruptcy judge in a foreclosure action (In Florida Deutsche Bank had used the Law Office of David J. Stern in thousands of foreclosure cases). The inquiry involves Deutsche Bank National Trust Co, the Deutsche Bank unit that acts as trustee for thousands of trusts that invested in mortgage-backed securities. The U.S. Trustees' Office is a division of the Department of Justice responsible for overseeing administration of bankruptcy cases.
April Charney, a Florida legal aid attorney who represents homeowners in foreclosure cases and who is an expert on mortgage securitizations, said that aside from possible sanctions against Deutsche Bank in this foreclosure case, the results could have significant effect on Deutsche Bank's practices in general, and on its ability to foreclose on large numbers of homeowners in default. The inquiry also could have an impact on other banks that act as trustees and mortgage loan servicers, if it establishes that the type of procedures used by Deutsche Bank were illegal.
NY Times January 28th, 2011...Deutsche Bank foreclosed on Sgt. James B. Hurley while serving with the National Guard in Iraq. While Sgt. James B. Hurley was away at war, he lost a heartbreaking battle at home. In violation of a law intended to protect active military personnel from creditors, agents of Deutsche Bank foreclosed on his small Michigan house, forcing Sergeant Hurley’s wife, Brandie, and her two young children to move out and find shelter elsewhere.
When the sergeant returned in December 2005, he drove past the densely wooded riverfront property outside Hartford, Mich. The peaceful little home was still there — winter birds still darted over the gazebo he had built near the water’s edge — but it almost certainly would never be his again. Less than two months before his return from the war, the bank’s agents sold the property to a buyer in Chicago for $76,000.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Foreclosure Investigation Zeros In On the David J. Stern Law Firm And His Title Companys. Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office has expanded its investigation of foreclosure law firms beyond false court documents and the so-called “robo-signers” who were producing them in huge volumes. Spokeswoman Jennifer Davis said, in response to questions from the Sun Sentinel, that the investigation is also focusing on allegations of misconduct by attorneys steering business to title companies owned by the principals in their law firms (David J. Stern), in addition to others who worked at the large law firms that formerly handled most of Florida’s foreclosure cases.
Pam Bondi’s predecessor Bill McCollum launched the investigation last year of four large foreclosure law firms – the law offices of David J. Stern, Shapiro & Fishman, Florida Default Law Group and the law offices of Marshall C. Watson. David J. Stern’s Plantation-based law firm, which launched a publicly traded company to handle back-office functions for foreclosure cases, has come under additional pressure as its major clients Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pulled their business. Stern’s business subsequently laid off hundreds of employees, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE….
