This is a major action and EXPLOSIVE NEWS in the FRAUDclosure battle

The name of this blog is OHIO FRAUDclosure, so we want to stay on target topic!  This IS a major story and a long awaited and much anticipated Class Action lawsuit. The complaint clearly spells out the criminal behaviour of the co-conspiring entities which acted in concert while participating and perpetrating enormous FRAUD in OHIO's foreclosures. 
Folks - this is much bigger than the State of OHIO and is proof positive that Ohio's top legal warrior and consumer advocate is still Marc Dann! Our former Attorney General along with some powerful legal allies have filed this action on behalf of a proposed class consisting of:

ALL OHIO CITIZENS who were (a) defendants in judicial foreclosure actions {with} first lien mortgages on their homes that were purportedly held by securitization trusts, and that were knowingly initiated and prosecuted by Defendants on behalf of parties that lacked legal standing to do so, and (b) who were damaged by Defendants’ abusive foreclosure practices, including: (i) preparing, executing, and notarizing fraudulent court documents and assignments of mortgages and other property records that were used to initiate and prosecute such foreclosures, and (ii) imposing inflated, unfair, unreasonable and/or fabricated fees for “default management services” (the “Class”) Three (3) categories of defendants {Servicers, Foreclosure document venders, and Foreclosure Mills) acted in concert and conspired in furtherance of the fraudulent scheme to generate enormous profits from default servicing fees by knowingly initiating foreclosure actions on behalf of entities that lacked legal standing to bring such actions.
OHIO FRAUDclosure spoke with attorney Marc Dann, by phone, and there is much more to come.

Sadly, in what appears to be an instant counter action and outrageous and unconscionable retaliatory attack - a 10-day eviction notice was posted on Plaintiff Michael and Laura YEAGER's home only giving them until Friday August 3rd - to move out! The PREDATOR DRONE foreclosure mill law firm (REIMER, ARNOVITZ, CHERNEK& JEFFREY CO LPA ) had filed a writ-of-possession with the Lake County Ohio Sheriff's department. The morally corrupt  bank sponsored attorney - Kristi Pallen* - ( (330-405-1199) has fought hard to legally block the Yeager's request for a  Stay (of an eviction) and also has refused a supersedeas property bond offer (collateral).
*Kristi Pallen - Previous irresponsible, bank-sponsored, failed action ADMONISHED:
*Plaintiff’s counsel, Attorney Kristi Brown, also identified as Attorney Kristi Pallen, filed this matter on behalf of bogus Plaintiff, U.S. Bank National Association.
The Court finds Plaintiff’s counsel (Krisit Brown kna Kristi Pallen) did not follow Local Rule 4.2. filing procedures for service by Certified Mail....and...
The Court strikes all entries pertaining to service and further, the Court finds Plaintiff’s counsel failed to prosecute this matter...and.. Therefore, it is ORDERED this case is dismissed, without prejudice, .....and for Want of Prosecution. It is further ORDERED this case is dismissed as to Willie Grady aka Willie Grady, Jr., and Unknown Spouse, if any, for failure to perfect service within 120 days, according to Fed.R.Civ.P 4.
Plaintiff’s counsel is admonished !!!!! as to Service by Certified Mail.

This great attorney, and former AG, remains active in OHIO while continuing to fight and wage legal battles against the TBTF banks and Predator Drone (Foreclosure Mill) law firms. He continues to be a champion for those fighting violations of their Consumer Rights. Dann twice has taken time out of his busy schedule for phone interviews with OHIO FRAUDclosure. He recently drove two hours to meet with us and share an "inside look" at his busy schedule and planned future legal actions. Many of these actions will have an impact at a national level with possible implications to the ever changing Federal Laws guiding foreclosure judges. Marc Dann has filed Class Actions suits against Servicers for foreclosing on borrowers that were either eligible for or in a HAMP modification. Additionally he filed a "Class Action" suit against a giant OHIO Predator Drone (foreclosure mill) law firm Lerner Sampson Rothfuss (LSR). Unfortunately, the terms of the settlement could not be shared with us, but we've assumed the homeowners were made happy.

Additionally national blogger Martin Andelman (Mandelman Matters) shared this phone interview as an audio podcast (Click Here).
