This PHH, Ocwen and Altisource Class action Lawsuit is now on LIT’s Tracker.
We’ll be updating this page as the case develops.
“This case concerns fraudulent practices committed by Ocwen and AltiSource in connection with the servicing of home mortgage loans involved in Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceedings. Specifically, Defendants have engaged in a common scheme involving the creation and collection of fees, costs, charges and other amounts in circumvention of the Bankruptcy Code and in violation of federal consumer protection statutes. This scheme has resulted in countless borrowers and debtors like the Plaintiffs completing the rigid requirements of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy only to be denied the “fresh start” to which they were entitled.”
ORDER – Because the parties now consent to the Bankruptcy Court deciding the Motions to Dismiss pending in the Adversary Proceeding, Judge Moberly may decide the pending Motions to Dismiss and enter final judgment, if warranted, based on that consent.
Accordingly, the Court REJECTS Judge Moberly’s Recommendation to the District Court to Withdraw the Reference Pursuant to Local Rule B-5011-1(b), 1 , and declines to withdraw its reference of this matter to the Bankruptcy Court (SEE FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION).
Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 5/18/2022. (DWH)
Southern District of Indiana (Indianapolis)

Through no fault of his own, Todd lives in fear of losing his home despite making over 87 consecutive timely and adequate monthly mortgage payments. This is because the recipient of the funds has and continues to hold him in a manufactured state of default. In so doing, and in abusively attempting to collect amounts Todd does not actually owe, Ocwen has violated nearly every consumer protection statute in existence and blatantly disregarded Orders and protections put in place by judges within this very district.
