LANSING (AP) – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has issued a second criminal investigative subpoena against a national mortgage servicing support provider.
The attorney general has been looking into questionable mortgage documentation practices.
Schuette’s office said Tuesday that it has requested documents and information regarding DocX operations in relation to foreclosure and bankruptcy-related document processing.
The subpoena was approved by 54B District Court in Ingham County, and the information must be provided to the attorney general’s office by April 4. Schuette previously filed a criminal subpoena against DocX on June 12.
Schuette launched an investigation last spring after county officials across the state reported they suspected Assignment of Mortgage documents filed in their offices may have been forged.
A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with DocX lawyer Mitchell Berger.
