California governor sued over homeowner relief fund reallocation

The lawsuit demands that the state of California reinvest money for those trying to stave off foreclosure

Usually, state lawmakers are on the accusatory end of financial suits, trying to bring unruly financial institutions to heel. This time, though, California Governor Jerry Brown is the one under fire, facing allegations that he unlawfully diverted $369 million in homeowner relief in order to pay for state bills.

A lawsuit filed against Brown and other California officials on March 14 demands that the state of California reinvest money for those trying to stave off foreclosure.  The lawsuit was filed by the National Asian American Coalition, COR Community Development Corp. and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.
