BOSTON (AP) -- The Massachusetts state employees’ pension fund will receive more than $11 million as part of a settlement with Countrywide Securities Corp., state Attorney General Martha Coakley said Monday.
The settlement was announced as part of Coakley’s industry-wide review of residential mortgage practices in Massachusetts.
The total settlement with Countrywide is $17.3 million. It includes a $6 million payment to the state.
The pension fund can also expect to receive an additional $7 million early in 2014 as a result of a $34 million settlement with JPMorgan announced by Coakley’s office last month.
The settlements with Countrywide and JPMorgan are the latest in a series of six similar settlements with total payments of more than $300 million going back to 2009, according to Coakley.
They include settlements with Goldman Sachs ($60 million), Morgan Stanley ($102 million), Royal Bank of Scotland ($52 million), and Barclays Bank ($36 million).
"It is important to hold Wall Street accountable for its role in the in the subprime lending crisis," Coakley said in announcing the latest settlement.
Coakley is also a Democratic candidate for governor next year.
