The dust is beginning to settle after the federal government and 49 states agreed to settle with five banks over allegations of fraudulent foreclosure documents. The deal will pay homeowners who lost their homes some money and will allow people facing foreclosure the opportunity to have the interest or the principal lowered on their mortgages.
