Dominion Financial Services, LLC v. Bank of America, N.A.

Decision of Maryland Court of Special Appeals


Maryland's intermediate appellate court has affirmed the Baltimore City Circuit Court's grant of summary judgment in favor of Bank of America, which loaned money for a home purchase without paying off a prior lien. Maryland's legal concept of "equitable subrogation" allows Bank of America to leap-frog over the prior lien to the first position. This decision affirms long-standing law, and paves the way for the homeowner to seek modification of her Bank of America loan.
