Freedom Mortgage Corp. v. Burnham Mortgage, Inc., No. 08-3007

By FindLaw Staff on June 23, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a tort and contracts action alleging defendants participated in a fraudulent mortgage-flipping scheme, district court judgment is reversed where: 1) plaintiff's suit is not barred by the Rooker-Feldman doctrine; and 2) plaintiff's suit is not barred by claim preclusion, as claims against the borrower on the note are distinct from whether defendants committed fraud that induced plaintiff to make loans or whether defendant followed plaintiff's prescribed closing procedures.
