Washington Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Jordan Et Al.
In a landmark decision, the Washington State Supreme Court ruled in July that the "standard industry practices" of a entering borrower’s home during a foreclosure and changing the locks on the home violates Washington State law. This 6-3 ruling is the first in the nation of its kind and has broad impacts for Washington homeowners, as well as national mortgage companies. The case will now move forward in federal district court on behalf of the nearly 4,000 certified class members.
JDSA's Clay Gatens has led this class action suit since its inception in 2010 and argued in front of the Washington Supreme Court in January 2016, which led to the favorably decision.
