Nevada AG Sanctioned in Fraud Case

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada judge is ordering the state to pay legal costs that could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars to a lending services firm that state Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto accuses of consumer fraud.

Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez ruled Thursday that the attorney general's office failed to produce evidence of claims Masto made in December 2011 about a civil lawsuit against Lender Processing Services Inc.

Masto's office isn't immediately saying how she'll respond.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based Lender Processing Services is now called Black Knight Financial Services.

Company attorneys were traveling and unavailable for immediate comment.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports they're due to file a bill for legal costs with the court.

Trial in the case is slated in September.
