Compulsory Counterclaims to foreclosure
Helfinstine v. Wells Fargo Bank, NA, 9th Dist. Summit No. 29551, 2020-Ohio-4675
In this appeal, the Ninth Appellate District affirmed the trial court’s decision, agreeing that the borrower’s counterclaims were compulsory as they were logically related to the lender’s claim in the foreclosure action and were required to have been raised in the prior foreclosure.
