The Executive Office of the United States Trustee, part of the Department of Justice, has embarked on an initiative to investigate bankruptcy-related practices of the major mortgage servicers. The United States Trustees have not identified any authority to conduct an investigation beyond specific matters pertaining to individual debtors or their estates. But that hasn’t stopped them from filing hundreds of motions in cases across the country seeking documents and testimony regarding individual cases in which servicers have filed proofs of claim and motions for relief from stay, as well as documents regarding the servicers’ practices and procedures on a wide range of issues.
