Monday’s Adjudication Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • Three men in the San Francisco Bay were convicted by a California federal court. The three men participated in a three year bid rigging scheme that took place at foreclosure auctions. The three men attempted to suppress evidence by the government regarding their unauthorized use of the hidden microphones without a proper warrant.
  • Connecticut residents are outraged at their home insurance companies. They claim companies such as AIG, Allstate, and State Farm, refused, in bad-faith, to approve their insurance claims. The state’s homeowners initially filed insurance claims with various insurance companies to mitigate the damage to the foundations in their home due to the use of defective concrete.
  • A few investors of mortgage backed securities are suing HSBC Bank for their 3 billion dollar loss during the financial crisis in the early 2000s. The investors claim a breach of duty by the bank regarding sifting through dud mortgages.
