    $30,000,000

    Dundon v. U.S. Bank, et al. (S.D.Ill. No. 01-CV-408-GPM) In this case, plaintiffs alleged that certain Illinois second mortgage loans that were secured by real property located in Illinois were assigned to, among others, U.S. Bank.

After conducting discovery throughout the country, the Illinois class was certified, over defendants’ objection and defendants’ petition for review from the 7th Circuit was denied. Thereafter, the parties agreed to a settlement in the amount of approximately $30,000,000.00 which has received preliminary approval from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

  • In Re: Wachovia Corp. "Pick-A-Payment" Mortgage Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation

    $600,000,000

    In Re: Wachovia Corp. "Pick-A-Payment" Mortgage Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation Settles For Estimated Value of Over 600 Million Dollars On May 17, 2011 the United States District Court for the Northern District of California granted final approval of the class action settlement. This lawsuit involves multiple cases filed in seven states and consolidated before Judge Fogel of the District Court for the Northern District of California. Among other claims, the cases sought relief for violation of the Truth in Lending Act and various state consumer protection acts in the sale and marketing of the Pick-a-Payment mortgage loan product. The Pick-a-Payment mortgage loan permitted the borrower to select and make a minimum payment amount for a limited time and subject to certain conditions. When a payment was insufficient to pay the interest owed, unpaid interest was added to the loan balance and the outstanding loan balance increased ("negative amortization"). Mr. Buxner was appointed Plaintiff’s Class Counsel and appointed to the Plaintiff's Executive Committee by the Federal Judge overseeing the litigation. Mr. Buxner was also on the negotiating team that reached a settlement that delivered in excess of 600 million dollars in benefits to the Class consisting of cash and loan modifications and an additional 25 million dollars in attorneys’ fees and costs.
