Firm settles with W.Va. AG over mortgage case

Court Watch Posted on

A Texas law firm has reached an agreement with West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw to resolve a case stemming from a national mortgage settlement.

Officials said Wednesday that Murray LLP has agreed to stop offering services in West Virginia to help homeowners receive benefits from a settlement between lenders and states.

Claim forms already were sent to more than 5,000 West Virginians who lost their homes to foreclosure eligible for payments under the settlement.

McGraw had sued the company earlier this month for allegedly charging fees to consumers for completing the claim form.

Officials say the company has agreed it would not represent or collect payments from West Virginia consumers in relation to the settlement
