Roseville, California (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
Though settlement was reached recently with the States’ Attorneys General, UFAN Legal Group, PC (“UFAN”) continues to see significant interest in litigation against Wells Fargo and the other major banks participating in the settlement. Despite the settlement, many California homeowners continue without relief.
UFAN filed its first complaint against Wells Fargo on September 1, 2011 in Sacramento Superior Court (case number 34-2011-00110146). The case targets alleged fraud in the origination of loans, Wells Fargo’s improper servicing of borrower’s loans, and other claims mainly concerned with contract law.
The Judicial Counsel of California recently agreed to coordinate this case with another similar case pending in Los Angeles (Mireles v. Wells Fargo, Case No. BC467652, filed August 16, 2011). All similarly situated Plaintiffs now bring claims together. Likely, there will be an opportunity to add more Plaintiffs with similar claims.
Recent news headlines feature a major settlement between the States’ Attorneys General and four major banks, including Wells Fargo. While Wells Fargo, through this settlement, agreed to a large cash payout both to participating states and certain groups of distressed borrowers, many borrowers continue to be left without relief. For example, the settlement does not cover homeowners whose mortgages are owned by government sponsored entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, according to media reports. Reportedly, these loans make up more than 60% of California homeowners, and the settlement itself will only apply to about 250,000 California homeowners.
While the settlement precludes certain new actions by state officials against participating banks, it does not limit private lawsuits filed on behalf of homeowners. UFAN continues to fight for the rights of distressed homeowners who have been injured by the poor business practices of Wells Fargo, and who have been left without assistance despite governmental efforts.
