OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ANNOUNCES MORE COMPLAINTS FILED AGAINST THREE NOTARIES IN ROBO-SIGNING CASE

Las Vegas, NV – The Office of the Nevada Attorney General announced today that complaints have been filed against three more notaries in the State's ongoing massive robo-signing investigation. Meghan Shaw, Jennifer Lowe and Joseph Noel have all been charged with notarization of the signature of a person not in their presence.

"These complaints are the result of notary practices which did not conform with legal requirements of our state. These requirements were enacted to ensure the integrity of public documents and our action today is another step in our attempt to determine those responsible" said Chief Deputy Attorney General John Kelleher.

The charges stem from the notaries' involvement in the scheme to file fraudulent documents with the Clark County Recorder's office. The documents, referred to as Notices of Default (NODs), were used to initiate foreclosure on local homeowners. Through an investigation led by the Attorney General's office the notaries charged in this case have confirmed that their job duties included signing another person's name on a document and then notarizing that signature.

Shaw, Noel and Lowe are set to make an initial appearance in court on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 8:30AM in Justice Court 8.
