UPDATE: FL is signing.

This is a PR stunt! Don’t buy into the Florida bit here. AG Pam Bondi was/is front and center cheer leading this touchdown and bashed states that rejected nationwide foreclosure settlement. If anything this is to make her look good meanwhile her LPS peers are getting hammered.

So why no lawsuit against LPS? FL AG’s office subpoenaed them for quite some time and 2 states have unleashed royal hell on them.

Business Week-

California, New York, Nevada, Florida and Massachusetts are among the handful of states that haven’t signed a deal with banks over foreclosure abuses, according to state officials and two people familiar with the talks.

The holdouts include some with the highest rates of foreclosures. More than 6 percent of Nevada housing units had at least one foreclosure filing in 2011, giving it the nation’s highest foreclosure rate, according to RealtyTrac. California registered the third highest rate in 2011 with one in every 31 units having at least one foreclosure filing during the year, said the firm, which tracks foreclosures.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who have been some of the most outspoken in pushing for changes to the deal, were among those who hadn’t joined as of yesterday’s deadline. More than 40 states signed on to the accord, according to Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who is helping to lead talks with the banks.

“Adding more numbers probably improves the political dimension of the settlement from the standpoint of the attorneys general,” said Ken Scott, a Stanford University law professor. “If you can say there were only a handful of diehards that didn’t sign on, that gives you some political protection.”
