Arizona, Michigan and Florida set to join FORECLOSURE FRAUD Deal, Michigan to Pursue Criminal Investigation into LPS’s DOCX

AP –

Arizona, Michigan and Florida, three of the states hit hardest by the housing crisis, will join a nationwide settlement over foreclosure abuses, officials with direct knowledge say. They will join more than 40 other states in approving a deal that would benefit many Americans who lost their homes or can’t afford their mortgages.

The three states’ involvement buoys hopes that a full 50-state deal is imminent.

Formal announcements from Arizona and Florida could come within a week, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the settlement publicly.

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne said he first wants to resolve a separate foreclosure-related lawsuit his state filed against Bank of America.

Florida officials say they are still in discussions. Attorney General Pam Bondi “remains engaged in the settlement discussions in order to ensure that Floridians receive their fair share in the agreement,” she said in a statement. Other officials said Florida intends to back the deal.

Michigan announced Tuesday it would join the settlement. Officials said the state would receive about $500 million in aid.

Michigan officials also said they would continue a criminal investigation into Docx, a unit of Lender Processing Services of Jacksonville, Fla. The company is accused of using fake signatures on phony foreclosure documents. Missouri filed criminal charges against the firm and its founder Friday, saying it falsified 68 notarized deeds on behalf of mortgage lenders.
