National Mortgage Settlement discussion at Loyola
Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on February 20, 2013
U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan will be among the speakers discussing the landmark $25 billion national mortgage crisis settlement during a Friday appearance at Loyola University Chicago.
Madigan, a Loyola alumnae, was among a group of state attorneys general who helped negotiate the National Mortgage Settlement with the nation’s five largest banks over allegations that they signed foreclosure documents outside the presence of a notary public and without really knowing whether the facts they contained were correct.
Details of the settlement are available here: National Mortgage Settlement
Donovan and Madigan will be joined by former Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, and former North Carolina Commissioner of Banks/Independent Monitor Joseph Smith Jr.
The event is from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday and is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law/Philip H. Corboy Law Center at the school’s Water Tower Campus downtown.
