Ally Financial Ready to Fight AGs? Is the Announced Foreclosure Settlement Done or Not?


In today's Housing Wire, there's news that a deal has been reached in the Big Bank - AG Settlement of ForeclosureGate issues and the numbers seem to jive with the earlier reporting in the New York Times by Gretchen Morgenson (see our earlier post for details).
