88 Bank Orders Issued

Mortgage News

Bank regulators haven’t let up on the financial institutions they oversee — with 88 new regulatory orders identified during the past month.

Regulatory actions or terminations thereof, against financial institutions or their employees, saw a slight decline to 88 over last month’s report. Cease-and-desist activity was steady, while civil money penalties took a 50 percent decline.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. processed 60 matters during February, a decline of one from 61 matters reported a month earlier. A slight decrease was also noted when compared to 64 matters reported in February 2010.

The FDIC and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency together issued 27 cease-and-desist or consent orders. That number has remained constant for three consecutive months.

Failed financial institutions often faced cease-and-desist or consent orders prior to being seized by regulators. The FDIC issues such orders pursuant to Section 8(b), 12 U.S.C. §1818(b).
