Outfit Suspected Of Manufacturing Bogus Foreclosure Documents Countersues Nevada AG Alleging Due Process Violations

In Las Vegas, Nevada, Vegas Inc. reports:

  • The foreclosure processor sued by Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto in last year’s robosigning cases has now retaliated, suing Masto and alleging due process violations.

  • In December, Masto’s office sued Lender Processing Services Inc. (LPS) of Jacksonville, Fla., claiming it was involved in widespread fraud involving mass document-signing procedures in which foreclosure documents were fraudulently notarized by the thousands. That suit remains active in Clark County District Court.

  • The investigation that led to her suit also resulted in criminal charges against several notaries and two LPS officers.

  • On Wednesday, attorneys for LPS sued Masto in federal court in Las Vegas charging its due process rights were violated in the investigation.
