Class-Action Lawsuit Filed In Nevada Over 'Robo-Signing' Scandal
The mortgage servicing firm accused of running a massive “robo-signing” scheme in Nevada and directing Notary-employees to improperly notarize thousands of documents has been named in a class-action lawsuit by local homeowners.
The suit seeks to stop home sales and evictions affecting the plaintiffs as well as seeking monetary damages for alleged deceptive trade practices by Lender Processing Services Inc. (LPS). Notaries working for LPS previously testified before a grand jury that their LPS supervisors routinely had them notarize the supervisors’ signatures without proper identification or personal appearance on thousands of documents.
