LPS Responds to Allegations from Nevada Attorney General
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – December 16, 2011 – Lender Processing Services, Inc. (NYSE: LPS) strongly disputes the allegations made in the complaint filed by the Nevada Attorney General yesterday evening. LPS has cooperated with the Attorney General’s office for more than 14 months to resolve its inquiry in a manner which would benefit the citizens of Nevada.
Unfortunately, the company’s efforts to engage in meaningful discussions with the Nevada Attorney General’s office have been frustrated by the Nevada Attorney General’s decision to outsource its investigation to Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, a plaintiff’s law firm located in Washington, D.C., in apparent violation of Nevada law. The complaint highlights misconceptions about LPS and seeks to sensationalize a variety of false allegations in a misleading manner.
As the company has previously disclosed, it has discovered, during its own internal reviews, potential issues related to some of its past document execution practices. However, the company is not aware of any person who was wrongfully foreclosed upon as a result of a potential error in the processes used by our employees.
LPS will vigorously defend against the complaint filed by the Nevada Attorney General.
