The legal maneuver, which was filed in the ""8th Judicial District of Nevada"":www.clarkcountycourts.us/, alleged that LPS engaged in deceptive practices against Nevada consumers, and specifically, the company was accused of falsifying documents, fraudulent notarization of documents, widespread foreclosure-related schemes, improper behavior related to attorney/client communication, and improper reception of ""kickback"" fees.
Commenting on the motion to dismiss, Hugh Harris, president and CEO of LPS, said, ""LPS filed this Motion to Dismiss in response to the allegations made by the Nevada Attorney General. Although we have to defend ourselves against allegations that we believe are untrue, we remain committed to working with the Attorney General's office to resolve these matters.""
