Monday’s Adjudication Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • A California attorney is thankful. A federal judge halved her $10,000 dollar sanction. Earlier this year, this attorney received several sanctions because a federal judge believed she attempted to stall proceedings through the use of motions at an earlier court date in April.This attorney Laleh Ensafi currently represents a Wells Fargo customer. He is suing the bank for an alleged wrongful foreclosure.
  • Deloitte & Touche LLP escaped another bout of litigation with Fannie Mae. Shareholders of Fannie Mae blame the company for it’s need for a bailout during the financial crisis; however, a federal Florida judge dismissed the suit because the company cited irrelevant case law and waited too long to raise a new argument.
