 A federal judge wants Wells Fargo — the nation’s largest mortgage servicer — to reveal the procedures described in its controversial Home Mortgage Foreclosure Attorney Procedure Manual. 

Judge Robert Drain wants to specifically look at how the manual was used in the foreclosure case of Westchester resident Cynthia Carssow-Franklin. The move reopened the case, which had already gone to trial, according to the New York Post.

Judge Drain ordered Wells Fargo to produce the 2010 version of the manual, which some have argued provide detailed procedures to fabricate foreclosure papers on demand. [NYP] Christopher Cameron
