Michigan AG Issues 2nd Subpoena In Criminal Probe Involving Now-Defunct Suspected Racket That Allegedly Manufactured Bogus Foreclosure Documents

From the Office of the Michigan Attorney General:

  • Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today announced that he has issued a second criminal investigative subpoena against national mortgage servicing support provider DocX as his office continues to investigate questionable mortgage documentation filed with Michigan's Register of Deeds offices during the current foreclosure crisis.

  • "We are moving forward with our investigative efforts to find answers on behalf of Michigan homeowners," said Schuette.

  • The Attorney General is empowered to pursue criminal investigative subpoenas under the Code of Criminal Procedure (MCL 767A.2(2)). Schuette's office has requested documents and information regarding DocX operations in relation to foreclosure and/or bankruptcy-related document processing. The subpoena was approved by the 54B District Court in Ingham County, and the information must be provided to the Attorney General's Office on or before April 4, 2012.

  • This is the second criminal subpoena filed during the course of Schuette's investigation. Schuette previously filed a criminal subpoena against DocX on June 12, 2011.
