SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah attorney has filed a proposed class action lawsuit against Bank of America and its subsidiaries for allegedly executing tens of thousands of illegal foreclosures statewide.
Filed last month in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court, the lawsuit was brought on behalf of three Utah couples who lost their homes to foreclosure in May and June.
The lawsuit contends the companies have failed to operate within Utah foreclosure law. That includes allegedly hiding critical documents and information so that homeowners can't resolve their situations short of losing their homes.
Named as defendants are Bank of America, ReconTrust, BAC Home Loans Servicing and a Utah law firm.
Bank of America spokeswoman Jumana Bauwens declined to comment on the lawsuit Friday.
