Our recent win against Bank of America was featured in an article in the Bloomberg BNA’s Bankruptcy Law Report. Our client was awarded over $200k in damages after being falsely accused for more than two years of being in default on their mortgage.
Judge Timothy Corrigan said that the plaintiffs “might as well have been talking to a brick wall” as their repeated attempts to inform Bank of America of its error went ignored.
“We are all cattle when it comes to mortgage servicing in this country,” our own, Chip Parker who represented the plaintiffs, told Bloomberg BNA. “Our home loans are frequently shuffled from servicer to servicer with no incentive to treat customers like people.”
The court agreed with the plaintiffs that Bank of America violated the FSCPA, and in this case qualified as a “debt collector.”
