15 Lenders Subpoenaed

15 Lenders were recently served suboenas due to high FHA-backed default rates on mortgage loans. Kenneth Donahue, HUD's Inspector General, plans to get to the bottom of why these lenders in particular had such high default rates.

Mortgage Bankers Association's CEO, John Courson, was pleased with the news: "We're concerned about the viability of the program and we want to make sure that the bad apples and the bad players, frankly, are eliminated," he said.

The list of subpoenaed companies includes:

1. First Tennessee Bank N.A, Memphis, Tenn.
2. Alethese LLC, of Lakeway, Texas
3. Security Atlantic Mortgage Co., of Edison, N.J.
4. Pine State Mortgage Corp., of Atlanta
