New York gets $800M in Bank of America settlement

August 21, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — New York state is getting $800 million as its share of a national $16.65 billion settlement with Bank of America over its role in the sale of mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to the financial crisis.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the settlement Thursday. He says the bank has agreed to pay the state $300 million in cash and $500 million in the form of direct relief to consumers.

The deal calls for the bank, the second-largest in the U.S., to pay a $5 billion cash penalty and provide billions of dollars to struggling homeowners. Bank of America says its cash payouts will total $9.65 billion.

The settlement is the largest deal the government has reached with a bank over the 2008 mortgage meltdown.
