Bloomberg noted in a story today (2/10/12) that hashing out the $25 billion settlement reached by Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and three other U.S. banks with 49 states required missing some football.

The result was what the U.S. called the largest federal-state civil settlement in the nation’s history, ending a probe of abusive foreclosure practices stemming from the collapse of the housing bubble.
