``California's new regulations on how banks conduct foreclosures, backed by Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris, also grew out of the settlement. The new law outlaws such practices as "robo-signing" -- the rubber-stamping of foreclosures en masse -- and "dual tracking," or pursuing a foreclosure while the borrower is seeking a loan modification. The law also allows aggrieved borrowers and state agencies to more easily sue banks over foreclosure abuses.''
