Linda was also lead counsel on the statistical evidence hearing held in the case of Cremin v. Merrill Lynch, which resulted in a class wide pattern and practice finding of gender discrimination as part of a settlement process and recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars for women. She has been counsel in other high-profile significant verdict cases, for example, Sumner v. Merrill Lynch, Biondo v. City of Chicago (four jury trials in a class action race discrimination suit); Dornbos v. County of Cook, (an FLSA collective jury trial for the Bomb Squad) and Roche v. City of Chicago (a collective action successfully challenging the City of Chicago's mandatory age retirement policy for approximately 50 plaintiffs who filed related actions).
Ray Garcia is a highly distinguished attorney with considerable expertise in the fields of commercial litigation, bankruptcy, foreclosure defense, labor disputes, real estate and business law. In this insightful interview, he discusses fraud in residential loan applications whereby the lender or the broker would inflate and falsify the income and assets of the homeowner in order to qualify him/her for a loan they could obviously not afford. Brokers representing lenders often did not care about this situation because they got their commissions at closing regardless of whether the borrower paid or not. Most originating lenders, especially the sub-primes, did not care, either, because they were going to package these loans and then sell them to investors.
