On August 21, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder raising concerns about the provisions of the National Mortgage Settlement that relate to the government’s release of potential FHA-related False Claims Act-based claims against the settling servicers. Senator Warren’s letter questions the settlement amount that the government obtained for the release of such claims. The Senator calls for a “clearer and more public accounting of the [alleged] damages FHA incurred” as a result of the settling servicers’ conduct, and presses DOJ more broadly on its enforcement approach to large financial institutions. Senator Warren is seeking information and documents relating to the DOJ’s assessment of any potential FHA claims and the process by which it agreed to settle those claims.
