California, New York to Join US Mortgage Deal

California and New York, two key holdout states, are expected to join a multi-state mortgage settlement, smoothing the way for an announcement expected on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Florida, with its large distressed housing market, was also close to joining the settlement that resolves civil government lawsuits over faulty foreclosures and servicing misconduct, a separate person familiar with the deal said.

More than 40 states said they would join the estimated $25 billion deal in advance of a Feb. 6 deadline, but several states continued negotiations to address concerns specific to their state.
