- Excerpt from Recent Cases:

Steele v. Quantum Servicing Corp., No. 3:12-CV-2897-L, 2013 WL 3196544 (N.D. Tex. Jun. 25, 2013).

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas recently granted a motion to vacate its prior order determining that Plaintiffs’ Real Estate Settlement Practices Act (“RESPA”) claim was barred by res judicata. The Court nonetheless concluded, however, that dismissal of the claim was proper for other reasons, including that the foreclosure on Plaintiffs’ property took place before expiration of the pre-Dodd-Frank deadline for Defendants to act under RESPA.
