Goldman Sachs's (GS) mortgage-servicing business has temporarily suspended evictions and foreclosures in a number of unnamed states, the investment bank disclosed in a regulatory filing today.

Goldman said it's reviewing loan practices at Litton Loan Servicing, the firm's residential mortgage-servicing subsidiary, in response to requests from regulators and states attorneys general who are scrutinizing the banking industry's foreclosure practices.

"Litton has temporarily suspended evictions and foreclosure and real estate-owned sales [properties in foreclosure that didn't get resold and revert back to the lender] in a number of states, including those with judicial foreclosure procedures," Goldman said in the filing. "As of the date of this filing, the firm is not aware of foreclosures where the underlying foreclosure decision was not warranted."

Goldman added that as of Sept. 30, the value of its mortgage-servicing rights was not material, and any impact on their value would not be material to the firm.

And yes I voted for GW and would do it again given the choice compared to what leads this country now but in all honesty I would much prefer voting for a guy like Patton that would take care of political correctness. I never owned a FORD nor truck.................

Unwarranted??? When this government can stop outsourcing of jobs, stop bailing out banks and AIG, but does NOT bailout the everyday working person, is when you can tell me that foreclosures are not warranted.. When you can tell me that lenders did NOT know they were selling bogus loans, then tell me.. When one of our own Senators husband makes millions off the foreclosure process then you tell me. When Barney Frank is brought before the congress for turning his fat head away from what every person knew would happen, then tell me...You have gone way too far and way out of control...

Aren't these the same crooks who claimed their exposure to AIG was not material right before taxpayers were forced to cover GS $14 billion loss associated with the collapse of AIG credit default swaps? Goldman Sachs has no shame.
