Fairholme Pushes for Government to Release Documents

The case of Fairholme Fund v. The United States will continue to linger in the courts as the battle for getting the government to release the bulk of the documents pertaining to the preferred stock purchase agreements between the Federal Housing Finance Agency and the Treasury plays out with a motion filed this week. “We are now in a struggle with the defendants, both the Department of Treasury and FHFA, over claims of the deliberative process privilege they sought to keep from having to produce thousands and thousands of documents, even in redacted form,” Charles Cooper, attorney with Cooper & Kirk, the law firm representing the shareholder plaintiffs, told Inside The GSEs.

With originations expected to drop in 2018, will your shop turn to non-QM/non-prime mortgage products as a way to bolster volumes?

Yes, definitely. We’re planning a launch.


No. It’s still difficult compliance/regulatory-wise.


Maybe. It’s under consideration.


Not now. But things could change as 2018 progresses.
