This event focused on what Minnesotans, including members of the legal community, can do to help individuals affected by mortgage fraud. As part of the forum, several victims shared their stories and many organizations were present to discuss how everyone, including law students and lawyers, can get involved in being part of the solution.

Hank Shea of the Holloran Center made a joint presentation at the forum with Kristine Kelly, a former real estate mortgage broker from South Carolina, who was convicted of mortgage fraud and recently finished serving a 16 month term of federal imprisonment. The moderators were St. Thomas School of Law Associate Professor Nekima Levy Pounds for the first panel involving mortgage fraud victims, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Joe Dixon, head of the federal Mortgage Fraud Task Force in Minnesota, for the second panel involving representatives of the various organizations who are assisting victims.

This event was sponsored by the Holloran Center, the CEBC, and the School of Law. It was part of the Medtronic Business and Law Roundtable series.
