Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry on Thursday urged eligible borrowers to sign up for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's (OCC) foreclosure-review process, and suggested that homeowners who didn't like the results would still be able to sue their mortgage servicers later.The OCC has been at odds with the Federal Reserve Board over whether borrowers should be required to waive their legal rights as a condition of compensation under the independent foreclosure reviews being conducted by the 14 largest servicers.

Curry waded into the controversy on Thursday, in a 20-minute speech to housing counselors and bankers attending a conference at the Federal Reserve in Los Angeles.
