Lawyers for a Florida homeowner are using a May statement by JPMorgan executive Beth Ann Cottrell to claim that the homeowner’s foreclosure isn’t valid. In her statement, Cottrell said she was part of an eight-person team that approved about 18,000 documents a month without seriously reviewing them.
Ally Financial is putting the brakes on foreclosures in 23 states. More brakes to be applied in the days ahead, I would expect.
