A judgment of roughly $296 million was awarded against the entities formerly known as Allied Home Mortgage Capital Corporation and Allied Home Mortgage Corporation and a judgment of roughly $25 million was awarded against Allied’s president and CEO Jim Hodge, following a jury verdict that Allied and Hodge violated the False Claims Act and the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (“FIRREA”) for over a decade of fraudulent misconduct while participating in the Federal Housing Administration (“FHA”) mortgage insurance program.  According to the evidence presented at trial, Allied and Hodge abused the FHA mortgage insurance program by falsely certifying that thousands of high risk, low quality loans were eligible for FHA insurance and then submitting insurance claims to FHA when any of those loans defaulted.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The whistleblower will receive an award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (SDNY)
