Recently, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has been on the plaintiff’s side of the courtroom, gunning for Credit Suisse, Bank of America and others for misdeeds that occurred during the housing crisis of 2008. This time, however, the chief operating officer of the FHFA gets his turn in the defendant’s chair, with felony charges on the line.
