Federal Court Dismisses Robo-Signing Claim against Foreclosure Law Firm

Practice Areas
Commercial Litigation

Description

John Bunyan and Shannon Sprinkle won dismissal of an action against a law firm retained to initiate foreclosure proceedings. Granting Carlock Copeland’s motion to dismiss, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia concluded that the Plaintiff’s negligence claim failed because the law firm did not owe him any duty of care in the foreclosure proceedings. The district court also rejected Plaintiff’s “robo-signing” challenge to the assignment of his security deed executed by the law firm, finding that he lacked standing to challenge the assignment.
