Bank of America, U.S. Bancorp face another MBS suit

NCUA files lawsuit against two large banks

The National Credit Union Administration Board sued Bank of America (BAC) and US Bancorp (USB), claiming the banks failed as trustees over securities backed by home mortgages that defaulted after the 2008 credit crisis. Per Bloomberg:         

The article noted that the lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court and claims that both banks served at trustees for residential mortgage-backed securities in 99 trusts with an original face value of $5.8 billion.

They failed to review mortgage loan files for irregularities, missing “numerous problems,” including that the trusts “suffered enormous losses due to the high number of mortgage defaults, delinquencies, and foreclosures caused by defective loan origination and underwriting,” according to the complaint by the National Credit Union Administration Board.
