That pesky Due Process and rule of law thingie is soooo annoying:
“Home seizures in the U.S. fell 9 percent in October from the previous month, the biggest decline in a year, as attorneys general began a nationwide probe into lender foreclosure practices, according to RealtyTrac Inc.
The number of properties taken back by banks fell to 93,236 last month from a record 102,134 in September, the Irvine, California-based data seller said today in a report. Foreclosure filings, which also include default and auction notices, fell 4 percent from the previous month to 332,172 and were little changed from a year earlier. One in 389 households got a filing.
Top legal officers in all 50 states began a coordinated inquiry on Oct. 13 into whether banks and loan servicers used false documents and signatures on hundreds of thousands of foreclosures in a process known as “robo-signing.” The probe is on a “fast track” and may lead to multiple settlements, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, the leader of the investigation, said in an interview this week.”
I bet Musssolini, didsn’t have these complications . . .
