Description

Shannon Sprinkle, John Bunyan, and Joe Kingma won the dismissal of a federal action against a law firm that was retained to initiate foreclosure proceedings. The plaintiff alleged that his promissory note and security deed were forged and that the collections law firm “robo-signed” the assignment of his security deed and failed to get government authorization before foreclosing. In dismissing the action, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia concluded that none of these allegations stated a plausible claim for relief.
