Description

John Bunyan and Joe Kingma obtained the dismissal of claims against a law firm that initiated foreclosure proceedings. The plaintiff alleged wrongful foreclosure, negligence, and fraud claims, arguing that his security deed had not been properly assigned to the foreclosing bank. The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia dismissed the lawsuit, concluding that the plaintiff lacked standing to challenge the assignment of his security deed because he was not a party to the assignment.
