Does voiding of Bank of America settlement ruling impact credit unions?

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr CUNA Chief Policy Officer/Chief Economist Bill Hampel said there is no immediate concern for credit unions regarding a U.S. appeals court decision to throw out a $1.27 billion penalty levied by the U.S. Department of Justice against Bank of America (BofA) in connection with questionable mortgages sold by the former subprime giant Countrywide.Over recent years, the NCUA has recouped a total of $2.5 billion in legal recoveries arising from losses related to purchases of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS). The NCUA initiated litigation as liquidating agent for five failed corporate credit unions.Net proceeds have been used to pay claims against the corporates and the Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund. In turn, Stabilization Fund recoveries reduced borrowings from the U.S. Treasury and will increase the size of eventual rebates of assessments and extinguished capital. (See story: TCCUSF ends 2015 with positive $540.4M net position.)Hampel said there is no immediate concern regarding the settlements. The NCUA recoveries are based on legal settlements in a civil case to which both parties agreed. The appeals court decision on BofA is quite different in that it reverses a government-imposed fine for alleged criminal fraud. The court overturned the government fine because it said breach of contract–not fraud–was involved in Countrywide’s practices. continue reading »last_img read more
