Arizona sues Bank of America over mortgage servicing

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - The state of Arizona has sued Bank of America Corp (BAC.N), alleging that the bank has consistently misled consumers about its home loan modification process, a source familiar with the situation said.

The lawsuit, filed on Friday by Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, accuses Bank of America of violating the state’s consumer fraud act, according to a draft copy of the lawsuit obtained by Reuters.

The state also says Bank of America violated a consent judgment over its loan servicing, and is seeking a $25,000 penalty per violation, according to the lawsuit. (Reporting by Dan Levine; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
