Most Banks Charged in Atlanta Lawsuit Settle

Six banks accused in a whistleblower lawsuit of illegally charging military veterans hidden fees on refinanced home loans have settled out of court while two other banks will be brought to trial. In a ruling issued on November 19, 2012 in an Atlanta federal court, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg rejected motions to dismiss filed by lawyers for Wells Fargo & Company and Mortgage Investors Corporation, thus allowing lawsuits against both to proceed. The six banks that agreed to out-of-court settlements will pay a total of $161.7 million. They include Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., PNC Bank, First Tennessee Bank National Association, SunTrust Mortgage, Inc., CitiMortgage, Inc. and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. The lawsuit, filed in 2006, alleges that the banks cheated the veterans and American taxpayers out of millions of dollars by hiding illegal fees in home mortgage refinancing transactions and seeking to collect on federal loan guarantees when loans went into default.
