Consumer Law Clinic Successfully Defends Foreclosure Case and Moves for Attorney’s Fees

After four years of litigation, the Consumer Law Clinic won a foreclosure case last month. The judge dismissed Chase’s foreclosure action against our clients finding Chase did not have standing (i.e. did not prove it owned our clients’ loan) when it filed its lawsuit. Since it did not own the loan at the inception of the lawsuit, it was not entitled to sue our clients. Since our clients are now the prevailing party in the lawsuit, the Clinic is entitled to its fees and costs for the four years of litigating the lawsuit. Kudos to Certified Legal Intern Luis Fermin who spent the past year working on this case and arguing at two separate hearings!
