ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Fannie Mae has asked a Florida law firm under investigation by state officials for fabricating foreclosure documents to put on hold all the cases involving the government-controlled mortgage buyer.
Fannie Mae on Monday also asked the Law Offices of David Stern to stop setting up hearings for Fannie Mae cases. Spokeswoman Amy Bonitatibus said Fannie Mae was working closely with their regulator on this matter.
Last week, the Florida Attorney General's office released the deposition of a former assistant at the law firm who testified that the office manager for the foreclosure department would sign 1,000 files a day without reviewing them. The office manager also would allow paralegals to sign her name for her when she got tired, the former assistant said.
