Michigan Court Dismisses Plaintiff’s State Law Based Claims of Wrongful Foreclosure

By Ebube Okoli

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division after considering the arguments in Ashford v. Bank of Am., N.A., 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156159, 2013 WL 5913411 (E.D. Mich. Oct. 31, 2013), dismissed the plaintiff’s complaint, with prejudice.

Plaintiff alleged claims against Defendant BANA for breach of contract (Count I), wrongful foreclosure/declaratory judgment (Count II), wrongful foreclosure (Count III), and violation of the Michigan Mortgage Brokers, Servicers, and Lenders Licensing Act, Mich. Comp. Laws § 445.1651 et seq. (Count IV). Defendant BANA filed the instant Motion.

Defendant argued that Plaintiff’s complaint should be dismissed because there is no valid basis to overturn the sale of the Property after the redemption period terminated. The Court agreed and found the rest of the plaintiff’s claims lacking or without merit.
