Does this immunize banks from prosecution?

A:

No. There’s no criminal immunity whatsoever.  State attorneys general are using their civil law enforcement authority to fight for homeowners.  They are not immunizing any individuals or institutions from prosecution.  Criminal prosecutions are an entirely separate matter from a civil legal matter.  This is a civil, not a criminal, settlement, and this settlement does not prevent state or federal prosecutions.
