Countrywide Will Pay $108 Million for Overcharging Struggling Homeowners

June 9, 2010

On Monday Bank of America which now owns Counrtywide, agreed to pay $108 million to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it overcharged homeowners.  Federal agency releases on matters like this, even where there is not a specific ruling, regulation etc, can be found on Westlaw.  For the F.T.C. these are in the n the Federal Trade Commission Documents (FEDTCOMDOC) database, there are similar databases for many other agencies.

I think the best way to find this, or any database, is to type a description of what you are looking for into the ‘Search for a Database’ box.  But sometimes you just want a giant list of all the databases, you can drill down through the Directory on Westlaw, or we also have a PDF list of all the databases here, it can also be shipped to you for free.
