Eastern District of California Court Dismisses Plaintiff’s Claims of Federal Statutory Violations, Unlawful Foreclosure, Fraud, Equitable Estoppel & Accounting

By Ebube Okoli

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of California in deciding Herrejon v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 157126 (E.D. Cal. Nov. 1, 2013) dismissed the plaintiff’s complaint as it failed to allege cognizable claims. The plaintiff’s complaint purported to allege claims for federal statutory violations, unlawful foreclosure, fraud, equitable estoppel and accounting.

The plaintiffs (Ricardo G. Herrejon and Rosa E. Navarro-Herrejon) filed this action, which challenged the foreclosure of their property. The plaintiffs also sought to enjoin a November 4, 2013 property foreclosure sale. Plaintiffs’ complaint accused defendants of “unlawful foreclosure.” However, the court dismissed the plaintiff’s action in the absence of viable claims, the court also denied plaintiffs’ requested injunctive relief, and entered judgment on dismissal of plaintiffs’ claims.
