Homeowner’s Attempt to Void Mortgage Denied
Gentry Locke for the Defense.
Appomattox Circuit Court
The plaintiffs (home owners) filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the defendant mortgage company’s interest in their house. They argued that the lien was obtained by fraud due to a national home mortgaging online system. Represented by Gentry Locke, the defendant, a mortgage company, asked the court to dismiss the case. After briefing and oral argument, the Court dismissed the case permanently, judging that the plaintiffs had failed to state a claim, and that the plaintiffs lacked standing.
The case was dismissed and closed. The mortgage remains with our client, the defendant.
