The state was one of 46 as well as the District of Columbia that agreed to the settlement with Lender Processing Services over practices that included the “robo-signing” of foreclosure documents without properly reviewing documents.

The states said the company wrongfully foreclosed on homeowners who should have been allowed to stay in their homes.

The total settlement amounted to $121 million.

Rosenblum issued a statement Thursday that said the company provides mortgage loan processing and other services to some of the largest banks in the country, and after the housing bust, foreclosure became a big part of its business.
