Lehman Brothers lawsuits, Benjamin Lawsky - Lawsky Bails and Sails; New Lehman/GreenPoint Suit; Home/Land Price Trends

Posted To: Pipeline Press

Yes, I know it is the Friday before a 3-day weekend, after which it is okay to wear white shoes to formal events. (And yes, there will be a commentary tomorrow with some pretty informative letters.) But there is little time to comment on fashion when instead we can turn our attention to smutty trademarks. There aren't many of them in lending, but they are out there in other industries, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is set to reconsider whether banning scandalous trademarks violates the First Amendment. New York's boy Benjamin Lawsky is leaving to form a legal and consulting firm and lecture at Stanford University. One can be sued, and can also sue someone else.

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Purchase loans continued to increase as a percentage of loan originations in April. Ellie Mae's Origination Insight Report for the month put the purchase share of all closed loans at 52 percent , a 6 percentage point jump from March and the first time in 2015 that more than half of loans were originated for that purpose. Seventy-two percent of FHA loans were for purchasing, also a 6 point month-over-month increase but significantly lower than the 80+ percent share of its loans that went for purchasing every month from May 2014 through January 2015. Fifty-eight percent of conventional loans were originated for purchasing and 68 percent of VA loans. Of all loans originated in April 64 percent were conventional , 24 percent FHA, 9 percent VA and 3 percent were classified as "other." Ellie Mae...(read more)
