Some H&R Block foreclosures stopped as loans called immoral

A Massachusetts judge is blocking H&R Block from automatically foreclosing on up to 9,700 Bay State homeowners, ruling that the firm apparently wrote mortgages with “reckless disregard (for) the risk of foreclosure.”

“Any lender with even a modicum of business morality should recognize that it is immoral, unethical and unscrupulous to issue a home loan with reckless disregard (for) the risk of foreclosure,” Suffolk Superior Court Judge Ralph Gants wrote in a preliminary injunction against H&R Block.
