Sue Thyself?

In the aftermath of the crash of the housing bubble, banks went on a foreclosure spree, even foreclosing on houses on which they didn’t hold a mortgage. But supposedly they cleaned up their act. Or did they?

According to publicly available records, one Bank, the Bank of America, in a single county alone, has sued itself for foreclosure 11 times in the last few weeks. If things are such a mess that banks are even suing themselves, you can only imagine how many mistakes they are making on other foreclosures.

How many people have been kicked out of their homes wrongly? And what is anyone going to do about it?
