Aurora Loan Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $41 million to settle allegations of FIRREA violations in the loans it sold between 2004 and 2008. The mortgage originator gave preferential treatment to five “Platinum” lenders by allowing them to underwrite their own loans and freeing them from quality control standards that were imposed on other lenders. The resulting decline in loan quality was linked to a higher rate of default, hurting investors who bought residential-based mortgage securities from Lehman Brothers. USAO CO
