Judge George N. Bowden of the Superior Court in Washington State ruled against Bank of America (BoA) in a foreclosure battle that ended with the “nonjudicial foreclosure sale under the Deed of Trust Act (DTA) [deemed] void” and the court setting the foreclosure aside.
In this case defended by StafneTrumbull law firm in Washington State, the homeowner won his house from BoA which is another big win against the company who has been caught doing these type of practices against millions of Americans.
Bradburn, the homeowner, was told by BoA “that he should stop making his mortgage payments so that he could qualify for refinancing.”
BoA ensured that this homeowner was in default of the mortgage by promising to refinance; then initiated litigation against the homeowner to retrieve the property for failure by Bradburn to remain current on his payments.
In a world of shady, shifty, and downright greedy corporate banks, Bank of America is right up there with the worst of them. If they really want to solve these types of problems they need to change the corporate law enforcement system.
These bankers and policy makers need to be held accountable for their actions, criminally accountable. Instead of fining them and overturning their awful actions we need to start putting the individuals behind the practices on trial.
Imagine if they started giving these guys prison sentences? For the really awful ones that ruin peoples lives and get found guilty they should probably get either life in prison or the death penalty.
