In October 2008, 11 state attorneys general settled a lawsuit with Bank of America Corp. that was supposed to provide relief for up to 400,000 homeowners.

Two of the states hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis, Nevada and Arizona, are suing B of A, alleging that the bank is not performing the loan modifications required by the settlement, which the two states (along with 31 others) ultimately joined. The company has denied the allegations in both suits and said it will fight them in court.
