Monday’s Adjudication Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • Quicken Loans Inc. (Quicken) stood before a Florida federal judge regarding alleged claims of telecommunications abuse. According to a consumer, the entity flooded her and other with calls regarding their services. Further Quicken allegedly has not sought the consumer’s permission before making these calls and has violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
  • A Florida mortgage company is on the hook for a mortgagor’s tax errors. In 2007, the mortgagee loaned money to a potential homeowner; however, the homeowner failed to properly file its taxes which resulted in a lien on the home. The now homeowner, mistakenly filed a “homestead property tax exemption” for several years.
  • Real estate giant, Zillow is appealing a four million dollar award to VHT, which offers real estate photography services. Earlier this year, a federal jury awarded the sum to VHT for Zillow’s copyright infringement. However, Zillow claims error in the award because the jury awarded damages based on each single photo instead of the set of photos as a whole.
