    Paulson, of course, made billions by shorting the U.S. housing market, and BofA (BAC) is the second biggest U.S. home lender. "It's ironic because he was the one that made the right call shorting subprime," money manager Jerome Dodson said. "His timing is good but he probably won't be as successful with this purchase as he was with betting the housing market would collapse."

    A federal judge refuses to approve a settlement between the SEC and BoA (BAC), asking for a 'much more detailed account of the underlying facts' before making a decision and suggesting $33M might not be 'remotely reasonable' if BoA lied about bonuses.

    A judge refuses to allow BoA (BAC) to pay the SEC a $33M settlement over bonuses paid at Merrill. A hearing is scheduled for Monday, as the judge says bypassing a hearing would leave the public in the dark about a critical part of the financial sector bailout.

    A Boston lawyer sues Wells Fargo (WFC) and Bank of America (BAC), claiming they extended loans that were almost certain to lead to default. If successful, the suit could open up a Pandora's box.

    A Treasury report due out today will show big banks are finding it harder to arrange mortgage mods than small banks are, crippling Obama's anti-foreclosure program. BoA (BAC), Citigroup (C), JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) are likely the worst offenders.
