Mortgage Electronic Registraton System (MERS) Subpoenaed by NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman

MERS subpoenaed by New York, sued by Delaware

Some excerpts from the report…

MERS, the electronic mortgage registry used by the banking industry, was sued by Delaware on Thursday and accused of deceptive practices that led to unlawful shortcuts in dealing with the foreclosure crisis.

New York’s attorney general also took action against MERS, subpoenaing the registry this week for information about how it is used by major banks and a foreclosure law firm, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

The suit and subpoena were part of a joint New York-Delaware mortgage probe, the person told Reuters.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s subpoena to MERS requests information and documents related to Bank of America Corp , Citigroup Inc , JPMorgan Chase & Co , Wells Fargo & Co and Ally Financial Inc, the person familiar with the matter said. The person was not authorized to speak publicly.

Those are the same banks negotiating with state officials and federal agencies in the separate probe.

Schneiderman’s subpoena also seeks information on Amherst, New York, foreclosure law firm Steven J. Baum, which the attorney general has been probing since at least last spring.
